LA Salle stayed unbeaten in 12 matches after downing University of Santo Tomas, 25-23,25-19, 25-19, on Saturday in the 76th UAAP women's volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.
Ara Galang fired 18 points, while Mika Reyes added 11 for the three-time defending champion Lady Spikers, who have won 28 straight dating back to last season.
"Ang sabi ko lang sa kanila (players) pag nakakahabol (ang UST) wala na kailangan patunayan ang UST kasi di na sila pumasok sa top four kaya wala na pressure sa UST," said La Salle coach Ramil de Jesus.
The Lady Spikers were never seriously threatened and even came up with a 10-0 run for a 21-9 lead in the third set and went to seal the straight-sets win.
Pam Lastimosa and Mela Tunay each had 10 points for the Tigresses, while Ria Meneses added eight.
UST suffered its eighth loss in 12 matches.
