MANILA, Philippines—La Salle may miss a vital cog, but the Lady Archers remain favored to pick up their fifth straight triumph against winless University of the Philippines in the UAAP women’s volleyball at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the FilOil-Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Even if Camille Cruz remains a doubtful starter, the defending champion Lady Archers still boast a formidable roster with top blocker Michelle Gumabao, attacker Abigail Maraño, setter Mika Esperanza, Cha Cruz, Mika Reyes and Ara Galang at the helm.


Cruz recently hurt her knee in a bad fall during the third set of the Lady Archers’ grueling five-set victory, 25-22, 25-15, 23-25, 23-25, 15-11, over Far Eastern University.


University of Santo Tomas, which relinquished the crown to the Lady Archers last season, seeks a third straight win against the University of the East at 3:30 p.m.

In men’s action, the unbeaten Tamaraws also target to extend their streak to five against the winless Warriors at 10:30 a.m.
