NU tossers stay undefeated in Shakey’s Super League

National University stayed perfect after cruising past University of the Philippines, 25-21, 25-16, 25-20, in the second round of the Shakey’s Super League Collegiate Pre-season Championship at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum Sunday night.

The veteran trio of Bella Belen, Sheena Toring, and team captain Ces Robles did most of the damage for the Lady Bulldogs, who improved their carryover win-loss record to 2-0, putting them in a good position to clinch the crossover quarterfinals top seed in Pool E.

Meanwhile, Ateneo escaped a feisty University of Perpetual Help, 25-21, 26-24, 26-24, for a 1-1 carryover record also in Pool E.

Miner led three other Blue Eagles in double figures with 15 points. Lyann De Guzman had 13 markers while Faith Nisperos and Vannie Gandler had 12 and 10 points, respectively.

The Lady Altas, who got 15 points from Shaira Omipon in a losing cause, dropped to a 0-2 slate.

NU extended their winning run to four straight following a clean sweep of the group stage.

The reigning UAAP champions relied on their seasoned players to ward off the Fighting Maroons, who saw their four-game winning streak snapped.
