MANILA, Philippines–University of Santo Tomas carried out a shock and awe-inducing victory over three-time defending champion La Salle, 25-14, 25-23, 23-25, 25-19, Wednesday to move just a win away from the UAAP women’s volleyball finals.

Imposing the firepower which happens to be the most explosive in the league, the Tigresses employed a fast-paced, no let-up assault and hardly allowed the Lady Spikers a chance to gain their bearing at the full-packed FilOil Flying V Center.


Sisi Rondina fired 28 points for the Tigresses, who are now just one win away from clinching the final since Season 73, the same year they last enjoyed a twice-to-beat incentive.

La Salle suffered second straight defeat and now slid to No. 3 in the Final Four. It will need to beat UST twice to nail a finals slot.


This marks the first time in 10 years that the Lady Spikers will not have a twice-to-beat shield.
