University of the Philippines snapped its four-game losing streak and repulsed University of the East, 25-14, 18-25, 25-15, 25-10, to get back to winning ways in the UAAP Season 79 women’s volleyball tournament Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Lady Maroons, who started the season on a four-game unbeaten run before spiraling, improved to 5-4 while sending the Lady Warriors to a 1-8 record.

UP assistant coach Rald Ricafort said this win was a huge boost for them as they are trying to recover from their disastrous skid that saw them plummet from first seed all the way to sixth.

“They’re getting there mentally but the basis really is if they can show that in the game,” said Ricafort. “But this is a huge help for us.”

UP tied National University and Far Eastern University with 5-4 records with all three schools competing for one of the Final Four spots.

Ateneo (7-1) and De La Salle (7-2) have established solid footing on the top two spots while University of Santo Tomas have laid claim on the third seed with a 5-3 slate.

Diana Carlos led UP with 21 points while veteran Kathy Bersola and Isa Molde added 18 and 16 points, respectively.

Shaya Adorador had 12 points to lead UE.
