Ebuen catches fire in Arellano U s second straight win

Games Monday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 9:30 a.m. -- Letran vs. Mapua (jrs) 11 a.m. –- Letran vs. Mapua (w) 12:30 p.m. -- JRU vs. SSC-R (w) 2:00 p.m. -- JRU vs SSC-R (m)   Rookie Necole Ebuen waxed-hot as she led the repeat-seeking Arellano University to a 25-19, 25-12, 25-11, demolition of Emilio Aguinaldo College for the solo lead Sunday in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The opposite hitter, who joined the Lady Chiefs last year after spending three months in Letran's Team B, finished with game-high 15 points anchored on 11 attacks, two aces and a kill block. “As much as possible talagang pinipilit kong itimbang ang iginagalaw ng team. Ayaw ko kasing umaasa sa iisang tao lang,” said Arellano U coach Obet Javier, who parades an almost intact championship core. Jovielyn Prado scored 12 points with all but one coming off kills while Regine Arocha and Andrea Marzan combined for 12 markers for the Legarda-based squad, which stretched its winning streak to 14 straight since last season. Javier again sat out ace playmaker Rhea Ramirez (sore shoulder). Setter Sarah Verutiao, a transferee from University of Sto. Tomas, continued with her superb performance after tallying 32 excellent sets. The Lady Chiefs needed some time to heat up after a sluggish start in the opening set but were unstoppable in the next two frames as Arellano rained down 41 attack points and committing only 13 errors the whole match. EAC absorbed its second straight defeat in as many outings. Aira Binondo got eight points while Yvette Tongco finished with five for the Lady Generals.   --- Follow  this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
