Valdez and Tan forced a sudden death against the twice-to-beat armed Lady Spikers, 21-16, 24-22, Saturday night.
Meanwhile, the Tigers dethroned National University after beating the reigning three-time champions twice in the rain-delayed step-ladder semifinals to force a Finals duel with thrice-to-beat Ateneo.
Kris Roy Guzman and Anthony Arbasto of UST turned back the Bulldogs’ Madzlan Gampong and Bryan Bagunas, 21-14, 17-21, 15-11, in the first encounter followed by a 19-21, 22-20, 15-11 win in the second match late Saturday.
UST prevailed over FEU, 21-13, 17-21, 15-13, in the first step-ladder duel.
The Blue Eagles’ Marck Espejo and Ysay Marasigan swept the seven-game eliminations for an outright finals berth with the championship incentive.
