ARELLANO faces winless Technokogical Institute of the Philippines (TIP) as the Lady Chiefs try to bounce back from a shutout loss at the resumption today of the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.
The Lady Chiefs swept the College of St. Benilde Lady Blazers and San Beda Red Spikers but were floored by the unbeaten Adamson University Lady Falcons to drop to joint second with the Red Spikers heading to the homestretch of the single-round robin eliminations in two-division tournament organized by Sports Vision.
The Bustillos-based squad, however, remained confident of its chances against TIP in their 4 p.m. clash with Jovielyn Prado, Mary Anne Esguerra and Regine Arocha tipped to lead the Lady Chiefs’ charge again.
But on the brink with a 0-3 card, the Lady Engineers are going all-out to score a reversal although Jean Jinon and Eunice Mabayao would need to draw solid backup from the bench to neutralize the Lady Chiefs’ edge in talent and experience.
University of the Philippines (1-1), on the other hand, seeks to stay in the semis hunt as it faces another winless squad in St. Benilde (0-2) at 4 p.m.
Adamson University and National University (NU) moved closer to the Final Four with 3-0 cards.
