With just a little over an hour spent on he court, the Bulldogs separated themselves from the pack at 4-1 for solo first place, leaving idle Ateneo, Adamson and UP at second with identical 3-1 records.
James Natividad and Bryan Bagunad once again led the Bulldogs with 14 points each while Madzlan Gampong added 11.
Vince Mangulabnan was exceptional as usual in running the NU offense with 23 excellent sets.
The Red Warriors are yet to pick up their first win and dropped to 0-5.
Edward Camposano was the lone bright spot for UE with 15 markers with four blocks.
