Unfinished business -- The Lady Tamaraws are returning this season with this in mind, and that is to do one better than their runner up finish last season. Sans the graduation of their leader Bernadette Pons, loss of key players Kyla Atienza and Chin Basas, coach George Pascua still has the pieces to replicate, if not go all the way this season. Graduating seniors Jer Malabanan, Heather Guino-o and Kyle Negrito, Best Blocker Celine Domingo, stable role players Nette Villareal and Buding Duremdes plus rookie sensation Lycha Ebon will banner the green and gold squad. And against a short-handed Lady Bulldogs, whom they swept in season 80, they are hoping for a blazing start for season 81. Will FEU win their 30th crown after 10 years? 

Losing not one, not two, not three, not four, but five starters in Jaja Santiago, Urdas, Singh, Nabor and Sato was a big blow for the blue and gold squad. Not to mention a change in mentor-ship, former assistant coach Norman Miguel will now take the helm from Babes Castillo. But the seed of a new era will be planted this season for the Lady Bulldogs as they will parade a slew of highly skillful rookies, setter Joyme Cagande, libero Jennifer Nierva, power hitters Princess Robles and Ivy Lacsina. They will be guided by a handful of senior mainstays Audrey Paran and Roselyn Doria. Will NU rise to the occasion or succumb to youth? 

Relive their Season 80 elimination round matches here:

    FEU in 4 sets, PoG: Ebon

    I think Ebon will be having a field day with NU's outside hitters, NU will take 1 set because of Cagande's smarts
