With the 2016 Shakey’s V-League Collegiate Conference just a few days away, the league’s officials have released the groupings of the ten-team tournament Thursday afternoon.
Ten of the top collegiate programs in the country are set to take part in the 2016 rendition of the tournament. The teams participating are as follows: UAAP Season 78 runners-up Ateneo Lady Eagles, NCAA Season 91 champions College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers, NCAA Season 91 runners-up San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags, UAAP Season 78 bronze medalists Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, NCAA Season 91 semifinalists University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Lady Altas, UAAP Season 78 semifinalists University of the Philippines Lady Maroons, San Beda College Lady Red Spikers, defending SVL Collegiate Conference champions National University Lady Bulldogs, University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses, and NAASCU team Technological Institute of the Philippines Lady Engineers.
These ten teams will be split into two groups, playing each other in a round-robin format. The top three of each group will advance to the next round.
In the quarterfinals, the six teams that have advanced will play each other. However, teams that have already faced each other during the group stages will no longer have to face one another. The win-loss records of the teams from the group stages will carry over in this round. The top four teams will advance to the Final Four.
The 1st and 4th seed from the quarters will be bracketed together while the 2nd and 3rd seeds will be in the other bracket in a best-of-three semifinals. The winners of the semifinals will move on to the best-of-three Finals series while the losers will play a best-of-three bronze medal series.
If the series for the gold medal ends in two games, the series for bronze will end as well (per FIVB rules).
