    KR Guzman and Anthony Arbasto win nine matches without dropping a set.

    UNIVERSITY of Sto. Tomas completed a flawless run to the title on Sunday, scoring a nine-match sweep without dropping a set in the UAAP beach volleyball tournament at SM Sands by the Bay.

    UST’s uncle and nephew duo KR Guzman and Anthony Arbasto turned back FEU’s Jude Garcia and Jeremiah Barrica, 21-16, 21-16, in the second match of the best-of-three title series.

    "Thank you kay God kasi hindi niya kami pinabayaan, alam ko binibigay niya ang pinakamabigat niyang challenge sa pinakamalakas niyang tao," said Guzman, finally a winner after runner-up finishes the past three seasons.

    "Alam ko 'yung three bridesmaid finish namin 'yun ang nag-drive sa akin na magpush pa hanggang makuha ko ang gusto ko. Hindi namin inakala to, akala namin dream lang. Pero 'yun nga basta gagawin mo lang mararating mo rin 'yung dream mo," he added.

    The 20-year-old Guzman, named MVP, gave credit to the FEU pair for its efforts.

    "Grabe, grabe ang puso nila maglaro kasi kahit cramps na sila nagpush pa kaya malaki respeto ang respeto namin sa FEU mga bata pa sila may panahon din para sa kanila," he said.

    Arbasto, whose father is Guzman's first cousin, said he made it his personal mission to help his uncle claim the title.

    "Habang naglalaro kami kinakausap ako ng tito ko, kino-correct niya ako sa kung saan ako nagkukulang, so itong game na ito para talaga 'to sa tito ko para maka-recover siya sa downs niya sa NU kung pwede lang NU ang makalaban namin," said the 19-year old sophomore spiker.
