NATIONAL University did short work of University of the Philippines, 25-17, 25-22, 25-14, in the 76th UAAP women's volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan on Wednesday.
The Santiago sisters Dindin and Jaja, led the Lady Bulldogs with 16 and 13 points apiece, while last year's top rookie Aiko Urdas added 10.
It was the third straight win for NU and fifth overall in six outings to claim second place.
Despite the victory, Lady Bulldogs coach Edjet Mabbayad still pointed out their mistakes.
"Nire-remind ko pa rin sila na 'wag mag-relax," he said. "Kasi baka makuha ng kalaban ang momentum."
Angeli Araneta came with nine points for UP, while Katherine Bersola and Sheeka Espinosa added seven each, but not enough to keep the Lady Maroons from absorbing their sixth straight loss.
