UE’s returning senior, Leuseht Dawis, shared game-high scoring honors with Pablo, also coming up with 13 while sophomore captain, Shaya Adorador, tallied 10 markers.
The Lady Warriors weren’t too far off from the Lady Bulldogs in terms of offensive proficiency, trailing NU 25-33 in spiking. What did the Lady Warriors in were their 35 unforced errors, mostly off serves.
NU’s starting setter Ivy Perez missed her second game in a row due to an ankle injury. She is still day-to-day per team officials. UE’s Jasmine Alcayde suffered an ankle injury in the first set but managed to play up until the second set.
