    LLOYD Josafat had 32 points and delivered the match-clinching block as University of the East took down University of the Philippines, 25-11, 23-25, 25-20, 28-26, for its first win in the UAAP Season 82 men’s volleyball tournament on Saturday at MOA Arena.

    UR ended its eight-match winless run dating to last season as he scored 28 attacks, three blocks and an ace.

    Andy Andaya put the Red Warriors at match point with a quick attack, 27-26, before Josafat blocked UP rookie John Lomibao to end the match.

    The Red Warriors, who lost in three sets to Far Eastern University in their opener, is tied with UP at 1-1.

    “'Yung trinaining namin, lumalabas na. Tsaka tingin ko naman talagang gutom na gutom sila sa panalo eh,” said UE coach Jerome Guhit.

    “Sabi ko sa mga bata sila so nandiyan sila para i-prove 'yung sarili nila kaya maganda 'yung ginalaw nila.”

    Andaya had 15 points, all coming from attacks, while Kenneth Roi Culabat had 14 points, 20 excellent receptions and 16 digs.
