San Beda University preserved its perfect record after taking down Lyceum of the Philippines University in straight sets.

It only took 73 minutes for unbeaten San Beda University to take down Lyceum of the Philippines University, 25-21, 25-22, 25-16, and list its third straight win Monday in the NCAA Season 94 women's volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

LPU slid to 1-2 card.

No Lady Pirate scored in double figures with Mikaela Wanta scoring seven points while the veteran trio of Rocelyn Hongria and Bien Juanillo finishing with six each.  

Meanwhile, the Pirates defeated the Red Spikers, 25-22, 25-23, 25-21, for their first win in three outings in men's play.

Sinmart Saporna and Kier Tibayan led the way with 12 points each for LPU, which tied their victim.
