The UST Golden Tigresses dismantled the FEU  Lady Tamaraws in straight sets, 25-20, 25-16, 25-18 to complete a bounce back ordeal in the UAAP season 82 womens’ volleyball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay on Sunday, March 3. 

Led by their prized duo in the Laure sisters, the Tigresses easily cruised to victory as the Lady Tamaraws found no answer to UST’s red hot offense. 

The younger Eya scored a game high 16 points, while the elder EJ had 12 of her own. Veteran Caitlyn Viray and rookie Imee Hernandez had nine and seven markers respectively. 

“Number one adjustment na ginawa namin yung constant communication, especially pag nasa loob, yung nasa labas kasi talagang dire-diretso na kami sa pagbigay ng instructions so mas maganda yung naging receiver namin, yung mga player namin,” UST head coach Emilio Kung Fu Reyes remarked when asked as to what improvements his team made heading into the game. 

Save for the first set, UST found no problems as they swept FEU, especially in the third set that saw the Tigresses go up by as much as 10 points. 

UST also had 45 attack points in total, a stark contrast to FEU’s 27.

Jeanette Villareal and Czarina Carandang had seven points apiece to lead the Lady Tamaraws while Ivana Agudo had six in the losing cause. 

With the win, both teams are now tied with a 1-1 record. 

UST is set to take on the DLSU Lady Spikers next.

Four days removed from their opening loss against NU, the UST Tiger Spikers fell anew to the FEU Tamaraws after a five-set thriller, 21-25, 26-24, 25-20, 22-25, 12-15 in the first round of the UAAP season 82 men’s volleyball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay on Sunday, March 8. 

After a back and forth affair in the first two sets, UST seemed ready to pull away as they took a 2-1 lead against the Tamaraws before the Morayta- based squad managed to keep their composure and took the next two sets to take the game. 

The fifth set saw the Tiger Spikers struggle against FEU who had momentum on their side after winning the fourth set, and as much as UST was on its way to closing the gap, the Tamaraws ultimately sealed the game courtesy of Jude Garcia. 

Joshua Umandal had 21 points to lead the Tiger Spikers for the second straight game, while Jhun Senoron and Manuel Medina flanked him with 17 and 10 markers respectively.

For FEU, Jude Garcia led the charge with 27 points. Jose Javelona and JP Bugaoan had 13 apiece and Mark Calado chipped in 12 markers of his own.

The game now puts UST at a 0-2 record, while FEU stays unbeaten at 2-0. 

The Tiger Spikers will look to bounce back against DLSU on March 15.
