Game Today (The Arena, San Juan)
3:30 p.m. — Ateneo vs FEU

Ateneo and Far Eastern University dispute the right to arrange a title showdown with University of Santo Tomas today in the UAAP women’s volleyball Final Four at The Arena in San Juan City.

Their rubber match is at 3:30 p.m. with the No. 4 Lady Tamaraws looking to complete an upset of the top seed Lady Eagles after winning a five-set thriller in their first semis clash last Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Awaiting the result is UST, which earned its first finals appearance since 2011 after dethroning three-time champion La Salle in five sets last Sunday.

Heather Guino-O, Jeanette Villareal, Jerrili Malabanan, Elize Ronquillo and Gel Cayuna delivered when it mattered as the Lady Tamaraws edged the Lady Eagles, 10-25, 25-23, 25-22, 12-25, 15-8.

Coach George Pascua expects them to be in their best form as they aim to end Ateneo’s season despite a league-best 12-2 record in the eliminations.
