    NCAA rivals Perpetual Help and San Sebastian try to bounce back from opening-day losses when they clash on Tuesday in the Shakey's V-League Season 11 First Conference at The Arena in San Juan.

    The Lady Altas, winners of three straight NCAA titles, hope to get their bid going after bowing to defending champion National University in straight sets.

    Honey Tubino is again expected to deliver big numbers for Perpetual Help but the Lady Altas will need to draw huge games from other players including reinforcement Shallane Eniong, who managed just two points in their opening match.

    Game time is at 4 p.m.

    San Sebastian rookie Gretchel Soltones, who poured in 17 points before leaving the match against Far Eastern University with a sprained ankle, will not see action against the Lady Altas.

    That puts more pressure on guest player Maru Banaticla, who came up with 15 markers in their four-set loss to the Tamaraws.

    UPH and SSC are tied at the bottom of Group B with 0-1 win-loss cards.

    College of St. Benilde plays its first V-League match after a four year absence as the Lady Blazers take on Cebu champion Southwestern University in the 2 p.m. match.

    The Blazers are hoping to start their campaign with a bang as Therese Veronas and Jannine Navarro lead the squad against the Lady Cobras, who are looking to bounce back after a big loss.

    SWU holds an even record of 1-1 after winning its opening match against St. Louis University and losing two days later to Arellano University.
