NCAA back-to-back champion Perpetual Help eyes its first win, while National University looks to score a sweep of the group stage when they square off on Tuesday in the 10th Shakey's V-League First Conference at the Arena in San Juan.
The Lady Altas lost its opening match, bowing to the Arellano Lady Chiefs last week, and will be eager to bounce back in the 2 p.m. match game although they will have their hands full against the Lady Bulldogs, who are unbeaten in three matches and hold the top spot in Group B.
Perpetual will lean on guest player Joy Cases, Honey Tubino and April Sartin, who came up with 14, 12 and 12 points, respectively, in their game against Arellano last Tuesday.
NU (3-0), on the other hand, is bannered by the towering sisters of Dindin and Jaja Santiago, Myla Pablo and Cai Nepomuceno.
Meanwhile, winless squads San Sebastian College-Recoletos and Letran College clash in the 4 p.m. Group A match.
The SSC belles led by Thai guest player Jeng Bualee bowed to defending champion Ateneo and University of Santo Tomas in their first two outings.
Bualee, who exploded with 38 points for San Sebastian in their, 19-25, 25-14, 25-22, 25-22, loss to UST last Thursday, is expected to again come up with a monster game but the other players in the Recto-based squad also need to deliver.
The Lady Knights have a Thai guest player in Patcharee Sangmuang but lost in straight sets to La Salle Dasmarinas and Ateneo.
