UAAP 84: NU barges into final four after three-set beatdown of hapless UE

National University announced its entry to the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament Final Four with a bang, handing University of the East a three-set beating, 25-14, 25-17, 25-15 to remain undefeated, Tuesday at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

NU had four double-digit scorers in the match with Ivy Lacsina and Alyssa Solomon leading the charge with 13 points each. Princess Robles and Sheena Toring added 10 markers each while Mhicaela Belen had nine points.

Camilla Lamina dished out 18 excellent sets while Jennifer Nierva recorded nine digs and nine receptions in the quick victory which ran for just an hour and 26 minutes. NU continued its dominance in the UAAP by posting a perfect 10-0 standing almost halfway into the second round.

“Sa team naman, kailangan lang namin gumalaw nang tama,” said Lady Bulldogs head coach Karl Dimaculangan. “Yung execution kasi namin yun yung pina-polish namin e kasi nag pe-prepare na rin kami sa mas ano siguro na game. Kailangan lang namin matuto sa mga previous games namin, tignan kung ano pa yung puwede idagdag at kulang namin.”

The Lady Bulldogs went for the kill in the third set with Sheena Toring converting an ace off a misreception from the Lady Red Warriors to put her side ahead by 11, 23-12. That proved to be enough with NU bagging the win off a service error from Dea Villamor and a running attack from Ivy Lacsina.

NU completely dominated the spiking department, scoring a total of 47 compared to UE who just had 18 for the entire game. The Jhocson-bred spikers also outclassed the team from Recto in the blocks, 6-2.
