THE Univer­sity of Cebu (UC) Ju­nior Web­mas­ters will go for the jugu­lar against the Cebu Doc­tors’ Univer­sity (CDU) as they look to fin­ish the elim­i­na­tion round un­beaten in the F2 Lo­gis­tics Ce­safi boys vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment at 10 a.m. to­day at the Univer­sity of San Car­los (USC) Main gym.

UC barged into the semi­fi­nals last Sun­day af­ter beat­ing Don Bosco Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter (DBTC) for a clean 3-0 (win­loss) slate and the top spot in Pool A. DBTC, Cebu In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy - Univer­sity (CITU) and the Univer­sity of South­ern Philip­pines Foun­da­tion (USPF) all sport 1-1 cards.

Sit­ting at the bot­tom is CDU, which has been elim­i­nated from play­off con­tention af­ter drop­ping its first three as­sign­ments.

Although they are fac­ing an op­po­nent not ex­pected to give them a hard time in CDU, Ju­nior Web­mas­ters coach Alan Flores be­lieves that the team still needs to bring its A-game to­day so as not to com­pli­cate things.

“I just want them to fo­cus and en­joy the game,” Flores said.

When asked if they can win the crown this year, Flores said, “It de­pends be­cause some of the teams are re­ally strong too.”

Also in Pool A, USPF and CIT-U lock horns at 8 a.m. to­day hop­ing to bol­ster their semi­fi­nal chances.

Ear­lier last week, the South­west­ern Univer­sity (SWU) - Phinma and USC also made the semis cut af­ter fin­ish­ing in the top two in Pool B.

The best two teams in each pool af­ter the sin­gle-round robin elim­i­na­tions will ad­vance to the sin­gle-round robin semi­fi­nals with the top two fight­ing for the ti­tle.

In the girls divi­sion, the Univer­sity of San Jose-Reco­le­tos hopes to ex­tend its three-game win streak against UC while the reign­ing cham­pion Sa­cred Heart School-Ate­neo de Cebu bat­tles SWU-Phinma at 3 p.m.

Also in girls play, USPF bat­tles the Cebu East­ern Col­lege while CDU guns for its first win against USC.
