Bryan Bagunas and Madzlan Gampong fired 16 points apiece for the Bulldogs, who overcame the Tigers’ sharp serves to draw the first blood in their best-of-three finals affair.

Libero Ricky Marcos and Gampong took charge of NU’s floor defense and combined for 18 digs while Bagunas and Marcos had 27 excellent receptions.
