FAR Eastern University goes all-out against ousted Lyceum on Monday looking to secure the last semifinal berth at the close of the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference eliminations at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.
With a 3-1 card, the Lady Tams need to hurdle the Lady Pirates in their 4 p.m. encounter to join the unbeaten National U Lady Bulldogs and the top two teams in Group B.
But a Lyceum upset would pave the way for an FEU-Ateneo playoff for the last semifinals seat.
The Lady Tams hope to prevent a sudden death match as they try to arrange a semis showdown with Group B topnotcher the Adamson Lady Falcons.
Group B No. 2 Arellano will slug it out with National U in the other best-of-three semis duel.
The Lady Bulldogs sent the Lady Eagles to the brink with a four-set victory on Saturday to sweep the Group A eliminations.
With top hitter Bernadeth Pons out of the country after participating in the Southeast Asian beach volleyball tournament, FEU will bank on veteran Toni Rose Basas, Celine Domingo, Jeanette Villareal, Heather Guino-o and setter Angela Negrito.
Adamson, on the other hand, seeks to complete a sweep of the Group B elims as it plays also-ran San Beda at 6:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, National U tries to rebound from a shutout loss to Ateneo as it guns for the last semis berth in the men’s division against ousted St. Benilde.
With a 3-3 card, the Bulldogs can nail the slot with a victory over the Blazers in their 10 a.m. encounter. A reversal, however, would enable La Salle (3-4) to force a playoff for the fourth semifinal seat on Wednesday.
Far Eastern U (5-1) primes up for the semis against also-ran San Beda at 8 a.m.
