The Lady Tamaraws hiked their record to 2-1 for solo third behind undefeated teams De La Salle University and University of Santo Tomas, which are battling it out as of publishing time.

Fifth-set momentum-shifter Tagaod finished with 16 points, while Bakanke added 14 points in the victory.

“It pays off po lahat ng pinagtrainingan namin kasi pinaghahandaan talaga namin lahat ng mga games namin, so medyo overwhelmed po kasi nagawa namin yun. We did out best talaga,” said Petallo, who impressed with 18 points on 14 attacks, three blocks, and an ace.
