University of the Philippines has twice beaten defending champion La Salle, the only team that has beaten league-leading Ateneo so far.

Small wonder the Lady Maroons are upbeat as they get ready to take on the Lady Eagles on Saturday in UAAP Season 81’s women’s volleyball tournament at Mall of Asia Arena.

After all, they are getting their act together at the right time.

“This is not our peak yet. I feel there’s more to come,” said UP coach Godfrey Okumu after UP swept La Salle with a three-set triumph last week.

UP tests Ateneo at 4 p.m., after Far Eastern University collides with University of the East at 2.

The Lady Maroons will have their hands full against the Lady Eagles who, after dropping their first game to La Salle, have logged seven straight victories and show signs of slowing down.

UP will have to make full use of its double-barreled gun in Tots Carlos and Isa Molde, who unloaded 24 points in its victory over La Salle (25-16, 26-24, 25-19), if it wants to hammer out another major upset.
