NATIONAL University and Far Eastern University gun for their second win as they take on separate opponents when the 76th UAAP women's volleyball tournament resumes Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.
The Lady Bulldogs, bannered by the towering sister-tandem of Jaja and Dindin Santiago, are favorites to get past University of the East in their 2 p.m. match up.
Currently tied on top with FEU, La Salle and University of the East, NU is not about to take UE for granted.
“Same pa rin, magpe-prepare kami ng maayos para sa kalaban,” said NU coach Edjet Mabbayad. “Iniisip namin na challenge iba-iba ang skills (ng kalaban), hindi pwedeng maliitin ang kabilang team.”
Meanwhile, the Lady Tams tangle with last year's runner up Ateneo at 4p.m.
The Katipunan-based squad, however, is looking to bounce back from its season-opener loss to NU, with Alyssa Valdez again expected to lead the Lady Eagles in their bid for a breakthrough win.
