Since dropping their second-round opener, the De La Salle University Lady Spikers have been the most dominant team in the UAAP.

The three-time defending champs trampled their next five opponents. Yet, the Lady Spikers’ Final Four seeding is still uncertain.

At 10-3, the Lady Spikers have a one-game edge over University of Santo Tomas (9-4) for the second seed and a twice-to-beat advantage.

Whether the two will need a playoff for the second seed or La Salle will outright claim it is entirely in the hands of the Lady Spikers.Tiebreaker Times With seeding still uncertain, La Salle Lady Spikers look to overwhelm FEU in final match DLSU News UAAP Volleyball  UAAP Season 81 Women's Volleyball UAAP Season 81 Ramil De Jesus DLSU Women's Volleyball

“Sa side namin, very important ang game namin sa Sunday para ma-seal namin yung second spot,” admitted La Salle head coach Ramil De Jesus.

La Salle will face Far Eastern University (8-5) on Sunday while UST needs to win on Saturday against National Unversity (3-10) to have a shot at the twice-to-beat.

De Jesus, for his part, ensures a sharp La Salle side on Sunday. The stakes are higher, but the Lady Spikers have prided themselves on treating each opponent with equal ferocity.

“Well, kung ano yung treatment sa lahat naman ng teams, ganoon naman ang preparation ng ginagawa namin. Wala namang ‘last to, eto number one to.’ Walang ganoon eh. Basta lahat ng preparation na ginagawa, iisa lang,” said De Jesus.

“Ready kami ng lahat ng adjustment na gagawin ng kalaban, and then gumagawa rin kami ng game plan, ganoon din naman sa lahat. Ang target naming talunin ay kung sino mang makakalaban. Walang special treatment na ito mahina, pwedeng pakundisyon, walang ganoon.”

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
