Games Today (Philsports, Pasig)
10 a.m. – EAC vs San Beda
12 noon – NU vs La Salle
National U sets out against La Salle today, wary of its chances for a third straight victory against a team bannered by the league’s leading scorer in a key Group A match in the Spikers’ Turf Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.
The Bulldogs toppled the FEU Tams and the Philippine Merchant Marine School side in a pair of straight-set romps but expect a tougher outing against the Archers, who split their first two games, holding off the St. Benilde Blazers, 25-20, 22-25, 25-23, 25-21, but bowing to the reigning NCAA champion Perpetual Help Altas, 20-25, 15-25, 25-19, 25-14, 12-15.
But with Raymark Woo at the helm, La Salle is expected to measure up with NU, ensuring a fierce battle in the featured 12 noon duel of two of the league’s top teams. The match can be viewed live via streaming on www.sports.abs-cbn.com.
Woo has been averaging 25.5 points after three games and is tipped to dish out another explosive game along with Mike Frey, Arjay Onia, Joshua Elorde and guest player Rafael Del Pilar, libero Jopet Movido and setter Geuel Asia as they try to stop the Bulldogs’ early surge.
