SSC aims to keep clean slate, earn Final Four slot

San Sebastian College seeks to keep its record immaculate and plant a foot in the Final Four when it clashes with a dangerous University of Perpetual Help today in the women's division of the 92nd National Collegiate Athletics Association volleyball tournament at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
Unbeaten in six starts, the Lady Stags try to keep it that way as they shoot for win No. 7 that would also seal them at least a playoff for a Final Four spot at the expense of the Lady Altas in their 2 p.m. duel.
A win will also push San Sebastian two wins away from sweeping straight to the finals, where it will enjoy a thrice-to-beat advantage while reducing the Final Four to a stepladder semis where Nos. 3 and 4 collide to face No. 2, which will enjoy a twice-to-beat edge.
It will play Lyceum of the Philippines on January 23 and defending champion College of St. Benilde on January 25.
Perpetual Help is fighting for a Final Four slot as it is currently at No. 5 with a 4-2 (win-loss) slate.
It will need to sweep its last four assignments, including this one against San Sebastian to stay in the hunt. It will tackle LPU on January 13, Jose Rizal on January 20 and Arellano University on January 25.
In the only other women's game, St. Benilde (6-1) and Arellano University (5-1) face off at 11 am, hoping to boost their respective bids.
In men's action, Arellano (5-1) clashes with St. Benilde (5-1) at 9:30 a.m. and defending champion Perpetual Help (4-1) battles San Sebastian (3-3) at 2 p.m.
