LYCEUM of the Philippines University and Letran clash in a duel that has a lot of implications for the last Final Four slot Tuesday in the National Collegiate Athletic Association women’s volleyball tournament at the San Andres Sports Complex.

Holding a one-game lead over the Lady Knights, the Lady Pirates are going all-out in the 2 p.m. match as coach Cromwel Garcia’s side is seeking to inch closer in securing a breakthrough semifinals appearance.

Lyceum is currently tied with idle Mapua at third place with a 5-2 won-lost card, while Letran sits at No. 6 with 4-3.

Defending champion College of Saint Benilde has already clinched a Final Four berth with a 7-0 record and is two wins away from jumping straight to the Finals.
