UAAP 85 BVB: Rhodson Du-ot, FEU-D dethrone NUNS in dominant fashion

Far Eastern University-Diliman pulled off a quick 25-13, 25-13, 25-17 win over National University Nazareth School to rule the UAAP Season 85 high school boys’ volleyball tournament Tuesday at the Paco Arena.

The Baby Tamaraws completed the comeback after dropping the Finals opener to win the series in three matches.

Rhodson Du-ot was solid in orchestrating plays for Amet Butuin and Andrei Delicano to help FEU-Diliman emerge triumphant in the do-or-die match.

A Bacolod City native, Du-ot bagged the Finals MVP honors.

“Ibinigay namin yung best namin,” said Du-ot. “Katulad ng sinabi ko sa kanila na walang makakatalo sa masipag, kaya sinipagan namin hanggang matapos ang laro.”

Motivated than ever, Du-ot just simply played his game for the Baby Tamaraws to reach on top.

“Ginagawa kong motivation yung mga taong sumusuporta sa amin para maging mas malakas,” said Du-ot.

“Hindi ko nakuha yung Best Setter, mas pinatunayan ko sa Finals na kayang-kaya kong kunin iyon. Kaya nakuha ko yung Finals MVP po,” the Grade 11 playmaker added.

FEU-Diliman earlier won the high school football and basketball crowns.

Behind Bituin’s heroics, the Baby Tamaraws leveled the series Monday with a 23-25, 25-22, 25-14, 19-25, 15-13.
