Adamson and National University, polar opposites in last year’s UAAP, are in a collision course for the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference crown.

Victories today against their respective rivals will pit them against each other in a best-of-five title series.

But closing out their semifinal foes is easier said than done. Especially on the part of the Lady Falcons.

Adamson, which was never in the title agenda the previous season, is taking on UAAP heavyweight Far Eastern U in Saturday’s Game 2 of their semifinal duel at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The powerhouse Tamaraws are expected to pose an intense challenge to the Lady Falcons, who even trailed after three sets before clawing their way to victory in the last two frames, 21-25, 25-22, 20-25, 25-14, 15-8, in Game 1.

National U should have an easier path to the finals.

With the most dominant player in the active scene, Jaja Santiago, NU presents Arellano with more than just an uphill battle for survival.

The 21-year-old Santiago said the Lady Bulldogs have set their sights on the title.
