NATIONAL U leaned anew on sisters Dindin and Jaja Santiago as it spanked a Gretchel Soltones-less San Sebastian, 25-16, 25-19, 25-16, to notch its third straight win in Group B and move closer to the quarterfinals of the V-League First Conference at The Arena on tuesday.
The towering Santiago siblings combined for 23 hits with Dindin doing the damage from everywhere with eight kills, three aces and two blocks.
Aiko Urdas added 12 hits to help the defending champions.
Czarina Berbano and Jolina Labiano led the Lady Stags with eight points apiece but they sorely missed the power-hitting Soltones, who sustained an ankle injury in the team's loss to Far Eastern U two weeks ago.
San Sebastian fell to 1-2.
