Last v-l title berth up for grabs
Alyssa Valdez is no stranger to comebacks.
“Since Season 76 (in the UAAP),” said Valdez when asked how being in dire straits in the past toughened her. “It’s 0-0, do-or-die match. May the best team win.”
She has to use that exhortation on her Customs teammates, who will take on BaliPure in the winner-take-all Game 3 of the semifinals in the Shakey’s V-League today.
Valdez will have to do it this time against former collegiate teammates in both Ateneo and BaliPure. Gametime is 6 p.m. at Philsports Arena.
The winner will face Pocari Sweat on Saturday in Game 1 of the best-of-three final series.
Customs coach Sherwin Meneses said adjustments with Valdez and Thai hitter Kanjana Kuthaisong are working. But he’s expecting BaliPure to come back with a counter.
