NU ousts Adamson en route to UAAP men’s volleyball finals

By

MANILA, Philippines — It took time, but nonetheless, National University got the job done en route to the UAAP season 75 men’s volleyball finals.

Top ranked NU needed four sets set to oust Adamson, 25-22, 22-25, 25-19, 25-20, on Saturday morning in the first volleyball tournament event at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, in Cubao, in more than a decade.

The Bulldogs had their superior blocking, leading to 15 points, carry them to the win despite a poor performance from the service line, scoring just two compared to the Falcons’ eight.

The gruelling match that lasted for almost two hours.

Peter Torres led NU with 17 points, while Reyson Fuentes accounted for five points off blocks for a total of 13, while Reuben Inaudito added 11.

NU faces the winner of the other semifinals pairing between defending champion Far Eastern University and third seed De La Salle.

Ron Jay Galang, meanwhile, almost singlehandedly worked to keep Adamson in the game, as his squad managed to equalize in the second set, 25-22, before yielding for good.

Galang, the Falcons’ most consistent scorer throughout, finished with 22 points — 20 off spikes — while John Competente added 12.
