And when the Lady Tamaraws secured a twice-to-beat advantage for their Final Four matchup against Ateneo on Saturday, they knew that stopping at this stage is not an option.

Team captain Bernadeth Pons said they could never be complacent against the Lady Eagles despite needing just one win to advance to the championship round against either defending champion La Salle or fourth-seed National University.
