FAR Eastern University coach George Pascua is confident a top two seeding is still possible even as the Lady Tamaraws slipped to fourth after a loss to titleholder La Salle in the UAAP women’s volleyball tournament.

The Lady Spikers tightened their grip on the lead with a 9-1 win-loss record after a five-set win over the Lady Tamaraws on Sunday in San Juan, while the Lady Tamaraws dropped from a three-way tie for second to fourth spot at 6-4.

Ateneo and National University remain in joint second at 6-3.

The Tamaraws have four matches left in the eliminations, and Pascua says they are treating each one as must-win.

“Sabi ko lang keep learning lang kasi long journey pa,” he said. “‘Yun nga lang kailangan matuto sila.”

FEU takes on University of the Philippines on Saturday, Adamson University on April 7, University of the East on April 11 and National University on April 15.

“Kumbaga hindi na pwedeng matalo,” said Pascua. “Importante pa rin and No. 1 and No. 2. Sabi ko nga sa kanila ito ang turning point natin para umakyat tayo. Kailangan trabaho pa.”
