Rey de Vega, UST knock out Adamson in UAAP Boys’ Volleyball

University of Santo Tomas drew huge game from Rey de Vega to beat Adamson University, 25-17, 27-25, 25-17, to secure the remaining Final Four berth in the UAAP Season 82 Boys’ Volleyball Tournament Wednesday at the Paco Arena.

De Vega unleashed 18 points on 12 spikes, five service aces, and a block to lead the Tiger Cubs.

It was De Vega who starred UST’s fightback from a 2-11 deficit in the second set with five consecutive service aces to tie the game at 13-13.

The Junior Tiger Spikers then went toe-to-toe with the Baby Falcons and hang on to take the commanding 2-0 set lead.

UST started the third set by scoring nine of the first 10 points and never looked back to move on to the Final Four.

Paul Colinares added 12 markers, including three blocks, for the Tiger Cubs.

“Sobrang nakakaproud kasi yung lahat ng pinractice namin these past few days, nag work out lahat dito sa laro na ito. Ginusto talaga ng mga batang manalo,” UST assistant coach John Abella said.

Libero Vantracy Prudenciado provided the floor defense with 22 digs while CJ Segui poured in 11 receptions and five points for the Tiger Cubs.

Jefferson Marapoc led Adamson University with 17 points while captain John Gay chalked up 11.

UST will open its semifinals series with twice-to-beat Far Eastern University-Diliman on Sunday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

The other pairing pits No. 2 University of the East and No. 3 National University-Nazareth School.

Ranged against top-ranked Baby Tamaraws, the Tiger Cubs will work double-time to pull off a reversal.
