ADMU Lady Eagles
For the first time in seven years, the Lady Eagles failed to advance in the Finals after receiving the boot in the Final Four last season. The team bid goodbye to Thai head coach Tai Bundit, who was replaced by Oliver Almadro. Led by graduating players Bea de Leon, Maddie Madayag, Kat Tolentino and prized rookie Vanie Gandler, is the squad poised to take back the championship title?


DLSU Lady Spikers
The Lady Spikers, still mentored by multi-titled head coach Ramil de Jesus, aim for a winning start to their historic bid for a fourth straight championship with Des Cheng, Tin Tiamzon, Mich Cobb and May Luna headlining the charge. The team is preparing for a tough battle, especially that they will no longer have MVP title holders Majoy Baron, Kianna Dy, and Dawn Macandili.

    full off season exposure versus minimal exposure

    heavily scouted versus no scouting report

    dito natin malalaman kung ano ang mas effective sa off season. Tzarrr

    It's like comparing two students in an important examination.

    The student from Taft will come fully prepared using the PVL Open videos. The student from Katipunan will heavily rely on his stock knowledge, with limited preparations using the PSL Invitationals videos (where two expected starters, Saga and Clemente, did not play).

    The student from Taft will ace that exam. DLSU in 3 sets, POG Cobb.

    Nice analogy. No brainer who i'm choosing for this match. I think i have Cobb for POG too. When and where can we view our entries for the FL?

    Hirap magpredict dito kasi off season ang lakas ng ADMU, pero knowing DLSU at Coach Ramil sigurado may panggulat ito.
    Ateneo in 4 sets pero kung aabot ng 5 sets DLSU ito

    scouting can only do so much. the rest will depend on the pieces that will actually implement the scouting report. one cannot just ignore the manpower losses of dlsu given their importance during the past seasons. this match will probably be a lot closer than their matches the last 2 seasons and can go either way. we can all hype the rookies and the uaap first-timers but shoving them under the spotlight of an admu-dlsu match in their very first game of their first season can have either a positive or negative effect on the way they play. 

    good luck to both teams!

    Ateneo in 4 sets. The Lady Eagles will outblock their opponents from Taft. The only way DLSU can beat Ateneo is to take advantage of their Achilles’ heel which is reception.

    POG: Tolentino

    ateneo in 3 sets, pog dani #char

    andyan pa rin naman yung perennial problem sa first ball and lasalle would be the best team to capitalize on this. pero konting kapit lang sa receive malaki ang chance na maipanalo nila to. if ateneo somehow manages to keep in-system for most of the game, they can finish this match in 3-4 sets. but if lasalle manages to throw the wrench in the LE's offense through their tough serving, they can finish this off in 3 sets.

    key for ateneo is to receive well. kung hindi, at least block well. deanna needs a good first ball to feed the middles. kat is the constant. she will score. pag pati si maddie at bdl umiiskor, yan yung x factor. not expecting much from the OH, though.

    key for lasalle is service. either an ace, or a free ball na babalik sa kanila. yung natirang players, they may not be superstars, but they are more than capable of scoring, lalo na kung puro easyball yung babalik sa kanila. kahit hindi easyball, i think saga (and pretty much all of lasalle's wing spikers) can man the backline pretty well naman and deliver a good ball to cobb.

    serious prediction, ateneo in 4, pog kat.

    Ito yung game na ang hirap i-predict. 

    This will be a tightly contested game.
    If DLSU can get this in 4 sets ang POG ko ay si Cobb
    But if this match will extend to a 5-set game then it will be in favor of ADMU and ang POG ko ay si Madayag.

    Ateneo in 4 close sets.   Swags abound with a few bruises and controversial calls to boot.
  • RhophiRhophi 🦅 Eagle Squad🏅
    Sinu-sino pa ang mga heavy servers ng lasalle other than Cheng, Cobb, and Morente?
     This game will be a test of Ateneo's supposedly improved service reception. 

    Again if Ateneo can receive well, they can finish any  opponents off in 3-4 sets. 

    Hoping for an Ateneo win in 4sets, POG: Tolentino.

    Was she part of last season's top 10 best servers?

    At least half of lasalle's first six pala ay heavy servers...sana kayanin ng mga OHs at liberos namin yung service nila.
  • aleatoricwriteraleatoricwriter uh-huh 🦅 Eagle Squad🏅
    Established naman na pangit ang reception ng Ateneo, but they can still win games even on a bad receiving day. It’s about how they can mitigate that by digging and blocking well.

    Ateneo can bag this in 4, with Kat Tolentino as best player.

    Kung andun ang service game ng La Salle they could take this one in 4 sets
