UST mauls Lady Tams in redemption win


The Laure sisters came through for UST.

The Golden Tigresses barged into the winning column in a three-set pounding against FEU Lady Tamaraws, 25-20, 25-16, 25-18, in the UAAP Season 82 women’s volleyball on Sunday at the MOA Arena.

Coming from a frustrating five-set collapse against the NU Lady Bulldogs in their opening game, Eya and EJ Laure basically formed an unstoppable one-two combo in mauling the Lady Tams in just three frames.

Number one adjustment na ginawa namin yung constant communication, especially kapag nasa loob,” said UST head coach Emilio “Kung Fu” Reyes.

The younger Laure scored game-high 16 points while the older Laure registered 12 points.

The Tigresses unleashed their fangs based on their whooping 45 attacks compared to FEU’s 27.

On the other hand, Jean Villareal and Cza Carandang led FEU with seven points in a losing effort.
