Galang drops 31 points to lead Adamson over UP

By

MANILA, Philippines – Riding high on an impressive showing against National University, Adamson picked up where it left off and repulsed University of the Philippines, 25-12, 25-22, 24-26, 25-18, Sunday in the UAAP Season 75 men’s volleyball tournament at the Arena in San Juan.

Ron Jay Galang exploded for a game-high 31 points while Michael Sudaria added 14 for the Soaring Falcons, who had little trouble in early as they startled the Fighting Maroons to dominate the opening set.

It appeared as if Adamson was headed for a blowout win but the Fighting Maroons battled back and even managed to extend the third set and win, proving to be the steadier squad in the end game.

That, though, was the end of the drama as Adamson got its groove back and never let up en route to a crucial win that enabled the Falcons to pull slightly ahead of De La Salle and University of Santo Tomas in the standings.

Adamson moved to solo third place at 6-4, overtaking La Salle and UST, which had identical 5-4 records.

Galang, which also collected two blocks and three aces, has scored 60 points in two games after unleashing 29 points in Adamson’s, 22-25, 25-20, 25-22, 29-27, win over erstwhile unbeaten NU last Wednesday.

Skipper Dominico Lucindo tallied 16 points to pace UP, which slid to 2-7.
