Games in the V-League conference are heating up. After Benilde upset Ateneo and Adamson beat FEU and San Sebastian, the matches on Friday are just going to be as exciting. However, Adamson and UST are favored come Thursday. Adamson will be facing Benilde.

V-League Season 6
It’s time once again for the Shakey’s V-League tournament to take center stage. Its 2nd Conference for Season 6 is fast approaching. I think it should commence sometime this October? Last time around, it was the University of Santo Tomas that captured the crown during the 1st conference. The Tigresses defeated then defending champs San Sebastian College-Recoletos in 3 sets.

(To my initial disbelief, I did go over the list at least 3x before it dawned to me that UST will really be “Balse-less” this time around). She will be replaced by running spike specialist Roxanne Pimentel as UST’s guest player.
Here are some other interesting stuff I noticed in the team lineup:Read more
