UAAP Season 76: Ateneo Lady Spikers And Blue Spikers Updated First Round Schedules

We're in Season 1 of the Ateneo Women's volleyball team's post-"Fab Five"/Roger Gorayeb era. This year's Lady Spikers are a young and rebuilding team with a new head coach and no graduating players. I don't think they played in preseason tournaments, but they'll undergo a boot camp in Thailand next week to toughen them up some for the coming UAAP tournament.

Here is their updated tentative (read: still subject to change) first round schedule:
Sunday, 1 December 2013
Araneta Coliseum
2 PM – ADMU vs. NU

Saturday, 7 December 2013
FilOil Flying V Arena
4 PM – ADMU vs. FEU

Saturday, 14 December 2013
FilOil Flying V Arena
4 PM – ADMU vs. ADU

Wednesday, 18 December 2013

Wednesday, 8 January 2014

The Women's volleyball games will be aired live on Studio 23 and on uaaplivestream.studio23.tv.
