Centro Escolar University and St. Clare-Virtual Reality meet in the other semis duel set at 2 p.m.

CEU, which edged Go for Gold-St. Benilde, tries to keep its winning ways despite being reduced to an eight-man roster for expelling seven players for allegations of game-fixing.

St. Clare hopes to build on its stunning upset of Metropac-San Beda in the quarters.

Thirdy Ravena and Ange Kouame are expected to lead Cignal-Ateneo anew after its conquest of Chadao-Far Eastern University in the quarterfinals.

But Valencia-San Sebastian is out to prevent Cignal from drawing first blood behind Allyn Bulanadi and RK Ilagan.
