Marc VillarosaI made a joke about Benilde's basketball program hopefully being funded as much as DLSU for recruitment and other stuff, but is that really the case? Or is it just not in the cards to reach the heights the 2001 team achieved?
Oliver AsuncionDLSU better make sure of his eligibilty this season. Am sure the other schools will keep quiet for the meantime and try to see if they can spring a surprise on the Archers middle of the season by way of protest.
Archer GoKahit sino pa coach lagay nyo di mananalo CSB. Puro bata mga starters maliban kay Saavedra. Replacing the coach will just put them back to square one. Nakailang coach na ba CSB.since they started?
Problema sa team contintunity and recruitment. I dont know what they offer to recruits pero it appears CSB is not a prime destination. Heck even for the players that left DLSU for playing time, CSB is not even an option. Imagine if likes like Bolick, Salem, Mustre played for the Blazers instead
And they were the last team to have an import. Kung kailan nawala na sina Grey, Taha, Romero etc . They should have joined the import bandwagon early
Andrei ArtuzNaiyak ako, I remembered when I was still a cheerleader. May similarity yung story ni Ms. Patrona sa story ko😢

Trs GutierrezThe blue side was so ecstatic about their two-title run as if they built the best collegiate women's volleyball team. This is the problem with La Salle. We all know the rich history of our own volleyball team and yet not a single organization within the university would venture in making this truly public. This is not about being proud and arrogant. This is about putting things in proper perspectives. La Salle is the only school that directly contributed to the popularity of the game. I was very much aware of this 1999 team 10 years after I graduated from Taft. Volleyball then was just another sporting event in college until La Salle started winning which attracted initially, curious spectators. While La Salle's title game vs UST was not televised in 1999, it gave potential sponsors a window of opportunity to push a business model anchored on known and winning brand names. It was too early in 1999 which was La Salle's first title reign. However, in the ensuing years, right after the school landed Manilla Santos and co., and they started winning championships, more and more people gathered every game which led to the creation of the country's first amateur commercial league in Shakeys V-League. With La Salle winning titles against FEU and UST, (both the dominant teams prior to La Salle's winning ways), more and more people converge to watch with TV rights already being talked about. And with Ateneo gaining traction in 2010 for its own serious effort to duplicate its rival's ascension to volleyball superiority, ABS CBN saw an opportune time to extend its hold in the UAAP by offering exclusive TV coverage. The rivalry transcended from basketball to women's volleyball such that gate records were often broken the last 5 years sometimes even beating championship games held in men's basketball. The last 5 years, La Salle won 3 and Ateneo got 2, leaving the rest of the league eating dust. Over-all, the Lady Spikers is one of the most dominating teams in the UAAP winning 9 titles in the last 30 years. UST still leads with 10 followed by FEU also with 9.
Christine RendonI'm confused regarding the first UAAP victory of the Lady Eagles. Does it mean that Ortega-Patrona and the Lady Eagles won the crown when she played for the blue? Because I thought it was only 3 seasons ago when the lady eagles won their first UAAP title. Please clarify. Thank you.
Adrian Ricky B. TorresWhy is Mbala being called a 'reinforcement'? The word is defined as EXTRA personnel used to increase strength. He is a regular member, like the rest of the team. A PBA import is a reinforcement.
Bing MisaHe learned a lot in his few years stay in DLSU. Before you could see a lot of attitude from him that makes you wonder if it will hinder his ability to play to his full potential. Now he is very much matured and he doesn't let anything distract him from playing his game.
Jose Albert QuintosEarn your slot first Mr Perkins.. Your style may not be suited in the team's system today.. And dont be overconfident.. That motivates the other teams and takes the eye if the tiger attitude from our own.. We need to earn that crown
