MANILA, Philippines—De La Salle University snapped a two-game skid, sweeping University of the East 25-15, 25-14, 25-15, in the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament on Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.

Leiah Malaluan topscored for La Salle with 14 points off 11 attacks, two aces, and a block along with eight excellent digs.

Fifi Sharma and Jolina Dela Cruz backstopped Malaluan with 10 points each in the victory that put hiked their record at 3-2.

“We were coming off a loss so it’s a struggle,” said DLSU assistant coach Benson Bocboc in Filipino. “So we’re still trying to get that rhythm and this is our first step to going back to what we’re searching for and the players delivered, the result was good.”
