The Lady Maroons dictated the tempo in the deciding frame by cruising to an 8-4 lead and held on to that momentum on their way to their sixth win in 10 games.
Marian Buitre took up the cudgels for UP and finished with 19 points on 16 kills and three blocks while veteran Tots Carlos and Maristela Layug provided ample support with 16 and 15 points.
The win tied UP with University of Santo Tomas at fourth. (Kristel Satumbaga)
