The Philippine Star - - SPORTS -

Game to­day (Filoil Fly­ing V Cen­ter) 2 p.m. – UST vs AdU (Men’s play­off for No. 4)

Uni­ver­sity of Santo To­mas and Adamson fight to keep their re­spec­tive sea­sons alive as they con­test the re­main­ing Fi­nal Four berth in the UAAP Sea­son 80 men’s vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment to­day at Filoil Fly­ing V Cen­ter.

The Tigers forced the Fal­cons into the 2 p.m. rub­ber­match for the right to face No. 1 Na­tional U in the semis af­ter scor­ing a 25-23, 21-25, 25-16, 25-17 vic­tory over the AdU side last Satur­day.

The two carded iden­ti­cal 6-8 cards be­hind NU (12-2), Far Eastern (12-2) and de­fend­ing cham­pion Ate­neo (11-3).

“We had bun­gled many chances be­fore, mostly due to our er­rors. De­spite that, we still have a chance and we took ad­van­tage of that,” said UST coach Od­jie Ma­mon, whose wards hurt their F4 cam­paign when they went on a five-game slump in the mid­dle of the sea­son.

“Hope­fully we can make the most of this chance again on Wed­nes­day,” added Ma­mon, whose wards are gunning for back-to-back semis stints.
