THE UAAP Season 77 women’s volleyball tournament opens on Saturday, but the marquee grudge match between defending champion Ateneo and De La Salle won't happen until January 11 next year.
The first meeting between the Lady Eagles and the Lady Archers since their epic finals showdown last season will be played at the end of the first round of the eliminations at 4 p.m. and will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Lady Eagles put together a memorable run to last season's title at the expense of the Lady Spikers, who swept the elimination round to gain a thrice-to-beat incentive in the finals.
The Lady Eagles open Season 77 against National University on Saturday, 4 p.m. at the Mall of Asia Arena after the first women’s game between University of Santo Tomas and University of the East.
The Lady Spikers, on the other hand, debuts the following day against Adamson at The Arena in San Juan.
Aside from the Mall of Asia Arena and San Juan Arena, games will also be held at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
