UST books PVL finals berth

University of Santo Tomas recov­ered from its inconsistent plays as it bested Adamson, 25-15, 16-25, 25-22, 21-25, 15-8, yesterday to book a men’s finals berth in the Premier Vol­leyball League Collegiate Conference at The Arena in San Juan City.

The Tigers rode on the all-around efforts of Manuel Medina to sweep their best-of-three semis series.

They won Game 1 on Saturday, 25-18, 25-22, 16-25, 32-30.

Medina highlighted his perfor­mance with 16 kills to finish with 19 points. He also had two aces and one block.

UST seized the fifth-set momen­tum despite a fourth-set stumble, taking advantage of Adamson’s pass­ing errors for a quick 8-2 lead and never looked back.

Genesis Redido and Joshua Uman­dal also finished 14 and 12 points for the Tigers, while Jayvee Sumagaysay added 11 points.

Meanwhile, Far Eastern University (FEU) forged a rubber match for the other finals seat after edging Na­tional University (NU), 21-25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-23.

John Paul Bugaoan led with 13 points including three blocks while Redijohn Paler also added 13 points and seven digs to bounce back from a 21-25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-23 Game 1 defeat and keep the Tamaraws’ bid alive.

Game 3 is next Saturday. (Kristel Satumbaga)
