Not far behind is Adamson with a 3-0 mark.
John Paul Bugaoan also played a big role with 11 attacks, four blocks and two aces to finish with 15 points while Redijohn Paler pumped in 14 points for FEU. Kris Silang contributed with 22 excellent sets.
UST evened its win-loss record to 2-2 despite the strong efforts of Joshua Umandal and Jaron Requinton, who had 20 and 16 points.
While the Tamaraws needed a deciding frame to prevail, La Salle only needed 69 minutes in sweeping University of the Philippines (UP), 25-21, 25-21, 25-18.
