Tamaraws keep Blazers winless, break into semis

The Far Eastern University Tamaraws continued their outstanding run in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference, surging to their fourth straight victory at the expense of the College of Saint Benilde Blazers, 25-22, 27-25, 25-22, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

FEU head coach Rey Diaz lauded his squad’s wins, but acknowledged that his squad still have a ways to go in terms of improvement.

“Sa totoo lang, bata pa talaga ang team ko kaya maganda na pinapakita nila ngayon pa lang,” said Diaz. “Pero, siyempre, hindi pa tapos ang season. Marami pa kaming pinaghahandaan. Hindi pa tayo tapos dito. Kailangan maging consistent pa kami.

“Marami pa talaga kaming kailangang ayusin,” Diaz admitted.

Skipper Richard Solis topped all scorers with 17 points all of which came off attacks. Middle hitter JP Bugaoan added 13 points, which included a game-high four block kills.

Middle blocker Jethro Orian led the Blazers with 11 points. Owen Bacani managed 10 markers.

The Tamaraws, holding a 4-1 record, are through to the semis along with defending champions Ateneo de Mania University. They face UAAP rivals University of the Philippines Maroons (1-3) on September 25. Meanwhile, CSB (0-5) will try to end their losing skid against the San Beda Red Lions (1-3) also on September 25.
