Tams smash Red Warriors for first second round win
Greg Dolor of Far Eastern University soars for a kill.

Greg Dolor exploded with 22 points to help Far Eastern University notch its first win in the second round for a solo fourth position in a four-set 25-20, 27-25, 23-25, 25-13, demolition of listless University of the East Sunday in the 78th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The fourth year hitter smacked 17 kills, four service aces and a kill block to lead the Tamaraws to their sixth win in 11 games in solo fourth spot to boost their chances of nailing one of the three remaining Final Four berths.

League-leading defending champion Ateneo de Manila secured the first semifinals berth.

Richard Solis had 15 markers while Jude Garcia finished with 10 points for FEU, which arrested its three-game slump after closing the first round with a 5-2 record.

The Tams unleashed 55 attacks with 40 of those coming from Ronchette Villegas’ 40 excellent sets.

UE remains winless in 11 games and down with a 25-game losing skid dating back from last season.

Edward Camposano had 15 points while Jose Miggie Saguin scored 11 for the Recto-based squad. Ruvince Abrot posted eight markers.
