Venue: Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay

(1) DLSU Lady Spikers
Who will stop the ladies from Taft from achieving history? A triple grand slam, a 10th straight finals and semifinals appearance -- these are what is at stake during this match up. But armed with a twice to beat advantage, an 8-game winning streak and coming off a dominating win against its rivals, DLSU is poised to enter the finals once again.

(4) NU Lady Bulldogs
From a first round rampage, to a second round meltdown, the Lady Bulldogs will try to savage the most important games of the season. What's going on for the girls of coach Babes Castillo is that the last time DLSU and NU met in the Final 4 in Season 77, NU managed to extend that to a playoff , and Jaja Santiago was there. Can they turn their fortunes one last time this season?

    Hoping that all semis games both for men's and women's will be extended to a decider para mas exciting! Kahit sino na manalo sa tie-breaker. Haha

    Masakit man sa Bulldogs :heart: pero 
    Reception talaga problema ng Lady Bulldogs since day 1 of this season..
  • JAJA vs DLSU itong matcup na to. if gusto ng NU ma extend ang series kailangan mag step up ung ibang players lalo na mga wingers nila. 

    DLSU in 4 sets!

    I think Jaja will definitely go all out as this could very well be her last game. Solely on account of that, this could spell a victory for them. I'd expect 80% of the attacks will come from her.

    Yet it is a team, a solid one at that, she has to face. Unless she gets ample support it could very well be her last game.

    TBH, I don't think her teammates will be of any help at this point. Jaja should accept that and embrace a mamba mentality. I'm thinking along the same lines of how Valdez performed S78 Game 2 of the Finals. Yes, it is a steep hill to climb but is it impossible? No. It isn't sustainable though, we all know how S78 turned out. Should NU win this, DLSU will definitely win the 2nd game.

    LB key to win:
    1. Focus sa block, magaling naman mag block si sato, base sa previous game with LS nabblock nya si cheng lagi.
    2. Dapat ang settan lang ni nabor ay sina Jaja, sato, urdas at Jorelle. Ung iba wag na bigyan ng bola puro error ang supporting cast lalo na si paran haha
    3. Focus sa receive at digging, wag na tamad tamad sa pagkuha ng bola. 
    4. Ayusin ang serve. Dapat sure ball lahat.
    5. Ibigay na lahat sa game na to.

    1. Mag antay ng error ng kalaban, mostly maerror talaga players ng LB kaya kung marami sila macommit. Sure win na haha
    2. Hard serve and focus sa digging. 
    3. Bantayan ang Middles
    4. More combination play pag kaharap si jaja
    5. Gawin lang ung mga pa check na palo. Ito nagpanalo sakanila sa prev game.

    very big possibility of a 3 set DLSU win.

    DLSU in 4, PoG: Baron
    Just because Jaja won't give up sa set 3 and gising na rin si Singh, so they'll have better offense, feeling ko set 4 will be an extended set in favor of DLSU

    lahat na nasa f4 may k. paghandaang mabuti ang kada makakalaban LS. go LS.

    Llamado ang La Salle, pwedeng eto na ang last game ni Jaja.

    Mukhang wing spiker ulit si Jaja dito.
  • aediiaedii Member ✭✭✭
    Lady Bulldogs in 4 Sets...

    Hoping for a big game for Aiko and Jorelle.

    POG Jaja.

    NU is the worst ranked team in the second round--worse than even UE, and has slipped in all aspects of the game round-on-round.

    La Salle on the other hand is the most improved in the second round, and has just handed the second most improved team a straight-sets beating at the end of the eliminations.

    NU must resurrect their first round selves to make a game of this match-up.

    Side note: This week is the Finals week at La Salle. Will this affect their game on Sunday?

    Another side note: If La Salle wins on Sunday, Santiago will be free to play for her PSL club team, Foton, which will play F2 in the semis starting Tuesday.

    NU should win as I can't stand the overly reactive DLSU trolls.
