ATENEO and National University look to snap their two-game losing skid as they face winless opponents in the Shakey's V-League Season 11 Open Conference on Sunday at The Arena in San Juan.
The Lady Eagles collide with University of the Philippines at 4 p.m., while the Lady Bulldogs battle Philippine National Police at 2 p.m.
After winning their opening matches to PNP and UP, respectively, UAAP heavyweights Ateneo and NU absorbed back-to-back losses and are now in the bottom half of the standings with 1-2 win-loss cards.
Ateneo star and reigning UAAP MVP Alyssa Valdez averaged 23 points in three games but needs support from Amy Ahomiro, Michelle Morente, Miren Gequillana and Julia Morado as the reigning UAAP champions try to get back on the winning track
National University is still trying to find its rhythm without former skipper Dindin Santiago, and the Lady Bulldogs hope to get big games from Jaja Santiago and Myla Pablo as they battle PNP, bannered by the league’s No. 2 scorer Frances Molina, who normed 14 hits after four matches.
PNP has yet to win a set and the Lady Patrollers sit at the bottom winless in four matches. University of the Philippines also has a 0-4 card, although it has taken a set from National University in the opener before folding.
