MANILA, Philippines - Reigning champion De La Salle shoots for an early entry into the Final Four as it battles Far Eastern University at resumption today of UAAP Season 74 women’s volleyball action at the Arena in San Juan.

But the Lady Archers expect a tough challenge from the Lady Tamaraws, who gave the Taft-based squad a tough time before dropping a 25-22, 25-15, 23-25, 23-25, 15-11 decision in their first round meeting.   

La Salle is way ahead of the field with an 8-0 card while FEU totes a 5-3 record behind second-running Ateneo (6-2).

The men’s matches pit University of the East against Adamson at 9 a.m. and FEU against Ateneo at 10:30 a.m.

At the Ateneo field, men’s football hostilities resume with defending champion UP and University of Santo Tomas eyeing their second straight victories.
