For UST, top gun Mark Alfafara chipped in 32 points and 2 blocks while Carlo Pangan added 20 markers.

The Green Spikers now stand at 1-3 to end the year.

Slow start

The Green Spikers struggled against UST in the early going of the match.

The team’s defense was a little bit shaky against a relentless UST attack which caused the team to dug deep trailing 0-2 in sets.

Climbing back

Staring at a 0-2 deficit, the team never gave up and eventually got themselves back in the game.

With the efforts of Christensen and Woo, the Green Spikers even things up and forced a do-or-die fifth set.

In the fifth set, fatigue and lack of focus prevented the Green Spikers in grabbing the win which led to their 6-15 finish.

The team now holds a 1-3 record to end the year.
