    UST got its act together late in the third set with Yssa Jimenez and Camille Victoria teaming up to turn seal the set from a close 21-20 lead.

    Momentum just went the way of the Tigresses in the next two sets, with Laure putting her team at match point with a block on May Ann Nuique before an Adamson error iced the match late.

    "Nakakapagod," sighed coach Kungfu Reyes. "We won the hard way."

    "Ang learning namin, hindi kami bumibitaw at hindi natatapos ng diretso. Yung team ng Adamson mahirap kalaban, so luckily nakasandal kami. Kahit na double blackeye kami first two sets, hindi namin inayawan."

    Victoria added 16 markers from 13 attacks and three blocks, as Jimenez got 13 in the win.
