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.
“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.”
