Defending champion La Salle moved closer to gaining a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four after blanking University of Santo Tomas, 25-23, 25-23, 25-22, in the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Kim Kianna Dy powered the league-leading Lady Spikers (10-2) with 12 points, eight coming off attacks with four blocks.

Despite the straight-sets win, DLSU head coach Ramil de Jesus said his team was still trying to regain its form after a long layoff.

“This usually happens to us after a long break. We tend to be rusty,” said De Jesus in Filipino. “At least, the important part is the result. We were able to survive in straight sets.”
