CSB, AU, and SBU are all entering the Final Four with an 8-1 record but are ranked 1-2-3 based on points earned, set quotient, and point quotient, with the Lady Altas completing the semifinals cast with 6 wins and 3 losses in the eliminations.
The CSB Lady Blazers and AU Lady Chiefs, who have twice-to-beat advantage, hope to finish their respective match-ups behind top players Rachel Austero and Necole Ebuen, respectively.
