Before its crucial match against league-leader College of St. Benilde, defending three-time champion Arellano University gets a chance to polish its system when it clashes with Emilio Aguinaldo College in NCAA Season 95 volleyball Thursday at The Arena in San Juan City.

The game between Arellano (6-1) and EAC (1-7) is at 12 noon before the encounter of University of Perpetual Help System Dalta (6-2) and Letran (3-4)at 2 p.m.

Arellano head coach Obet Javier said the last thing he wants is for his players to relax against the also-ran Lady Generals.

“Ang iniingatan natin yung mag-relax, kasi hindi pwedeng ganun. Dapat solid performance pa din ang ibigay ng team. Kung ano yung klase ng laro na ginagawa namin, ganun pa din dapat,” said Javier.

“Magandang opportunity din ito para sa team na mag-improve, sa mga players. Although ang focus pa din dapat is to get the win, yun ang pinaka-importante na ma-accomplish ng buong team.”

Both the Lady Chiefs and the Lady Altas are assured of playoff berths alongside the Lady Blazers (7-0) and the San Beda Lady Red Spikers (6-2), which booked the last slot after a win over the Mapua Lady Cardinals last Tuesday.

The playoff format will be determined when CSB plays Arellano on Monday.
