Leaders De La Salle and Ateneo are already through to the semifinals by virtue of its identical 11-2 records. The Lady Spikers, though, hold the top spot because of a 33-32 points advantage over the Lady Eagles.

Far Eastern University clinched one of the Final Four spots after eliminating University of the Philippines Wednesday and improving to 8-6, but they could still climb up to third place if UST loses to NU.

The Tigresses hold the third spot ahead of Saturday’s double header with an 8-5 record while the Lady Bulldogs are a game behind at 7-6.

UST can retain its hold of no. 3 in the Final Four if it beats NU, eliminating the Lady Bulldogs in the process.

NU, however, can force a playoff for the fourth spot against UST with a win on Saturday, which will also give FEU the third seed.
