Error-prone NU still too much for Adamson
MANILA, Philippines—National University brushed off Adamson University, 25-21, 25-17, 25-23, to remain perfect in the UAAP Season 82 men’s volleyball tournament Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena.
Angelo Almendras and James Natividad put up 16 and 12 points, respectively, to lead the Bulldogs to a 2-0 record while the Soaring Falcons fell in their first game of the season.
Despite the sweep, NU head coach Dante Alinsunurin wasn’t too pleased with his team’s sloppy play after the Bulldogs gave away 21 free points off their errors.
“I hope our momentum continues but we should limit our unforced errors,” said Alinsunurin in Filipino. “Of course I thank my players for playing well but they should just focus more on the next games.”
“Our offense got better this time around so I hope this continues.”
NU outscored Adamson, 41-35, in spikes and had a glaring 12-5 advantage in blocks.
Francis Casas and George Labang Jr. had nine points apiece to lead the Falcons.
