The University of the Philippines Lady Fighting Maroons is scheduled for a head-to-head match against the UE Lady Red Warriors at 10:30 A.M. on March 7, 2020 live from the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila.
The Fighting Maroons will try to make a quick bounce-back win and that’s the same thing in the minds of the Lady Red Warriors when the UAAP Season 82 Women’s Volleyball returns at the Mall of Asia Arena this morning.
Head coach of the University of the Philippines, Godfrey Okumu agrees that all teams in this season’s of UAAP women’s volleyball are all good, yet, after they absorbed a defeat during their tournament’s opener against the defending champions, the Ateneo Lady Eagles last Wednesday, he wanted it to be their last loss at least in the first round of the elimination round.
“I would just say that all the teams are good and we all have the same purpose. We are taking it a point at a time, a set at a time, and day by day,” said Okumu. “We will study how they play but I wouldn’t like to lose another game in this first round. One game should be enough for me,” he added.
On the other hand, that statement thrown by the UP head coach will have its challenge from the Lady Red Warriors which are also eyeing for their first victory.
In their last outing, they got swept by FEU Lady Tamaraws with a score of 10-25, 22-25, 23-25.
