Lady Bulldogs look to tie La Salle for lead


Games Today (The Arena, San Juan City)
8 a.m. – UP vs Adamson (Men’s)
10 a.m. – FEU vs Ateneo (Men’s)
2 p.m. – UP vs UST (Women’s)
4 p.m. – Ateneo vs NU (Women’s)

National University aims for a share of the lead when it squares off with fancied Ateneo today in UAAP women's volleyball at The Arena in San Juan City.

The Lady Bulldogs gun for their seventh win against two losses in their 4 p.m. confrontation with the Lady Eagles to join the La Salle Lady Spikers at the helm.

NU is eager to get back on track after succumbing in straight sets to La Salle last week, and coach Babes Castillo hopes to see his stalwarts’ old aggressive form.

But Ateneo, which totes a 5-3 mark at fourth, is out to follow up a recent straight-set win over Far Eastern University while avenging a 25-19, 25-19, 20-25, 12-25, 15-7 first-round loss to NU last Feb. 7.

Meanwhile, University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas clash at 2 p.m. with hopes of regaining their respective composures.
