The Lady Spikers notched their 10th-straight win as they defeated FEU in straight sets 25-17 25-16 25-23. Barring any upsets in their succeeding games, they have more or less already secured the number one spot in the Final Four.
Wensh Tiu led the Lady Spikers with 17 points while Abigail Maraño added 12. Ara Galang, whose timely hits late in the 3rd set thwarted any chance of an FEU comeback finished with 11 points.
Except for their match against Ateneo next Saturday, the Lady Spikers have an extremely easy schedule to close out the eliminations. They will be taking on UP this Wednesday and UE on February 16.
In men’s volleyball, La Salle defeated Adamson 23-25, 25-20, 25-20, 25-18 to force a three-way tie with the Falcons and UST for third place with identical 6-5 records. Both FEU and NU are tied for first at 9-1.
