UAAP VOLLEYBALL: Kulang pa yung killer's instinct namin -- KKD
Inside the court, you treat each team equally, walang mahina, walang malakas. Preparation for every team will be the same -- DLSU hitter Kim Kianna Dy
De La Salle University essayed a straight-set win over University of the Philippines Wednesday that pushed the Lady Spikers closer to a Final Four spot in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament.
The Lady Spikers climbed to solo top spot with 7-2 win-loss record and a three-game winning streak.
With its 10th straight semifinals stint within reach, DLSU just looking to guard against complacency and keep its momentum going.
“Inside the court, you treat each team equally, walang mahina, walang malakas. Preparation for every team will be the same so yun,” said DLSU top hitter Kim Kianna Dy, who had 14 points in the Taft-based squad’s 25-15, 25-19, 25-19, win over the Lady Maroons at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Dy, who had five kills, five aces and four kill blocks, pointed out that the Lady Spikers still have a lot to work on.
“Siguro there are times na kulang (ang killer’s instinct) pa because there are times na malaki ‘yung lamang, hahabol yung mga kalaban, so that’s one thing we’re working on pa lang,” she said. “It’s a work-in-progress.”
The Lady Spikers will face another acid test on Sunday against Far Eastern University.
