MANILA, Philippines—National University stopped Mark Gil Alfafara and University of Santo Tomas, 25-22, 20-25, 16-25, 25-21, 15-11, Saturday in the UAAP season 76 men’s volleyball tournament.

Edwin Tolentino and Reyson Fuentes added 12 and 11 points, respectively for the Bulldogs, who are still atop the heap with a 10-1 slate.


The Tigers failed to close the gap in the chase for the fourth spot as they fell to 4-6, tied with La Salle and behind Adamson (5-5).

In the other game, Ateneo had it easy against winless University of the East for a 25-20, 25-33, 25-12 win.

Marck Espejo led the Blue Spikers, who improved their hold of the second place with an 8-1 card, with 16 points while Joshua Villanueva had 11.

The Red Warriors are left with three more games to notch their first victory of the tournament.
