DLSU: Cha Cruz/MARANO/GUMABAO
But I think its gonna be head to head between Cha, Pau, and Maicah
But I guess we will be surprised by Gumabao in IMO..
Just wait and see how Gumabao became a monster: as I saw her with their BAGUIO games..she will be a TRIPPLE THREAT to the other teams....very good blocker as we've known..but you will be amaze to see her attacking in 3 areas: UTILITY-OPEN-MIDDLE!
GUMABAO GUMABO.wow pagnapapnuod ko mga video nya last finals parng MVP dapat sya nun sa galing nya sa pagblock....kung masolid ng dlsu floor defense nila lalong nilang pahihirapan laht ng team...patay ang team na mbagal ang play..anyway anung first game sa november?..kala ko sa ADMU gym gagawin lahat sana sa ARENA nalang lahat..
gi reyes of ust is also someone to look forward for,.
as for the other team..I have no idea if who will be someone to look for...
I was just so lucky I was able to see DLSU WVT rotation and plays with their current line up..
everyone for them is a KEY PALYER
but most noted: MARANO matured a lot and much solid hits.
FAJARDO-ESPERANZA attacking for UTILITY
position (SOLID HITTERS)
GUMABAO nangugulang n din nagmature solid
kung solid, halimaw kung halimaw complete package she is now dependable in backrow defense also..much watched out to be
BACK ROW DEFENSE naman...MARANO and CHA as we know THEODOSIO, CHAYENE CRUZ, and MEL+FAJARDO-ESPERANZA tandem such amazing diggers too.
Who was the leading spiker in DLSU last season? Alarca and Mercado will be sorely missed by DLSU. Unless, they have a quality rookie like Valdez.
IN MY OPINION, Ateneo is the team to beat this season.
Hmmm.... Feisty comment, some people may contest it but to each is own, right?!
Heard it from the grapevine, DLSU have indeed acquired "super rookies", 4 or 5 i think. To name one, the highly touted, Carol Cervesa(younger sis of former lady spiker) & oh, did you miss/forgot the "other" highly anticipated recruit from USTHS in the name, Kim Fajardo?!
So I say, even if I'm a big Ateneo fan, DLSU is still a force to be reckon with.
DLSU might have "owned" season 73 but in this coming season(season 74), in "my opinion",things would be quite interesting to say the least. Much unpredictable & more exciting matches. There are frontrunners & underdogs but not a sure winner. Goodluck to all teams!!!
Can't wait for Season 74 Womens Volleyball.
Still rooting for ADMU!One Big Fight!!!!!
Fajardo was more of a setter way back in HS. Have yet to see her play as a utility spiker.
Every year DLSU gets a good batch of rookies but not all of them are ready for college play. It will be nice if Garbin does well this year as she has led Hope Christian against USTHS with Valdez at the helm.
If Cha Cruz will play I would want to see this rotation:
OH1: Cha Cruz
I also wondering that the reason why Gumabao is in BV. She might also be groomed to replace Mercado's spot & be moved to the Open Hitter position....hmmmmm....interesting dont you think?
Coach Ramil do this rotation actually...
Open2: Demicillo-if not effective Tiu-if still not effective Gumabao
Middle2: Gumabao/Cerveza if Gumabao in the open
Utility Attackers if not effective: if Esperanza serving she will do settings and Joanne Siy in the frontline for the attacking and blocking and if Fajardo in the service line she will do the settings and Garbin in the frontline for attacking and blocking.
Though I'm a DLSU fan, let's not forget other strong intact teams like FEU and UST.
baka pati ADu nyan may pasabog......sa UST tama na muna HYPE pero for sure naman malaks parin sila ....this will be the last year of rhea bka magulat tayo pumapalo na sya...
tao per tao mukha namang mas malakas ang ust ngayon kesa last year (except sa position ni aiza syempre)... kaya lang yung dalawang papalit sa middle at open ay mga rookies pa lang at wala pang experience sa college volleyball... dehado ang ust sa experience pero, for sure, with coach odjie, may laban pa rin ang team... i agree though na mas malakas ang admu at dlsu sa ngayon pero 3 months pa bago ang uaap kaya tignan natin... may mga projects(rookies) si coach odjie na mabilis natututo...
anyway, exciting ang season na toh... parang any team could beat any team (lol )... for sure, walag sweep ngayon... hehehe
its a battle between the veterans namely CHA CRUZ, DIMACULANGAN, CAINGLET, MORADA, and SORIANO.
kamusta ang UP...
si Araneta na ba ang Kapitan? si Isada pa din ba Libero? nag improve na ba sila Quejas at Genido, sayang ang tangkad nila e, malalakas naman palo nila kaya lang parang mabagal pa
e ang NU...
sino papalit sa Best Libero last year na si Jen Reyes? Maglalaro pa ba si Mangui? Maglalaro na ba si Dindin? sino main setter si Soliven o si Salibad? sana si Nepomuceno na ang kapitan
how bout UE...
graduate na ba si Rosale? babalik na ba talaga si Dawis?
kamusta ang mga recruits nila
UP's new team captain I think is Palad.
UP ang walang kakwenta kwentang team sa UAAP. Susko sipain na si Isada at humanap kayo ng foreign coach ng sumigla naman ang inyong ranking sa WVL.
Hindi naman sa pangmamaliit sa UST pero Aiza Maizo is one of the greatest volleyball players na naproduce ng UST and I doubt if the others could do the same things that she has done for the team. Unless they would have a power rookie kagaya ni Valdez.
Sa NU naman, I believe hindi problema ang recruitment ang problema naman nila ay Training. Obviously may problema ang training nila makikita mo naman sa laro nila Vivas at Santiago na medyo bumaba ang game nila at hindi na masyado nakausad. Probably they need a better coach.
UE wala ako masyado balita.
FEU, may pakiramdam ako na malaki chance nila for a spot sa final 4. Malaki ang chance ni Morada for the MVP masuportahan lang siya ng husto ng mga kasama niya.
Pero sa totoo lang DLSU at ADMU ang sa tingin ko maghaharap sa finals. Super ganda ng line-up ng parehonh teams and ADMU will surely give it all out. Lalo na sa ADMU this might be the best time for them to win the crown since marami sa kanila pagraduate na this year.
