UST remains scratch-free after San Beda sweep

The University of Santo Tomas Tiger Spikers remain the only unbeaten team in the PVL Collegiate Conference after dicing the San Beda University Red Spikers, 26-24, 25-20, 25-22, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

UST rattled off their sixth straight win and grabbed the top spot in the standings after UAAP champions National University Bulldogs absorbed a shocking loss, Wednesday morning.

Head coach Odjie Mamon emphasized the tournament’s importance in building his players’ skills and chemistry for the UAAP Season 81 Men’s Volleyball Tournament.

Mamon was particular with his team’s setters, stressing the need to develop their composure and decision making.

“Itong starters ko, sino-solid ko talaga kasi ‘yung preparation namin for this tournement hindi pang Unigames, pang-UAAP talaga,” he said.

“Pero I make sure during training na ang pamalit namin magco-contribute ‘pag sila naman ang sinalang sa court. Lagi ko lang sila nire-remind sa goal namin na which is to master (our game plan),” the UST lifer added.

Winger Manuel Medina led a balanced UST attack with 15 points. Middle blockers Ty Carodan and Jayvee Sumagaysay contributed 14 and 12 markers, respectively.

Jeffrey Losa topped the Red Spikers with 16 markers, while Angelo Torres added eight.

UST face the Arellano University Chiefs (0-5) on August 22, while San Beda take on National U on the same day.
