FAR Eastern University-Diliman pulled off a quick 25-13, 25-13, 25-17 win over National University Nazareth School to rule the UAAP Season 85 high school boys’ volleyball tournament Tuesday, Mar. 21, at the Paco Arena.

This is FEU-Diliman’s first-ever crown in the division.

Rhodson Du-ot was solid in orchestrating plays for Amet Butuin and Andrei Delicana to help FEU-Diliman emerge triumphant in the do-or-die match.

A Bacolod City native, Du-ot bagged the Finals MVP honors.

“Ibinigay namin yung best namin,” said Du-ot. “Katulad ng sinabi ko sa kanila na walang makakatalo sa masipag, kaya sinipagan namin hanggang matapos ang laro.”

Motivated than ever, Du-ot just simply played his game for the Baby Tamaraws to reach on top.

“Ginagawa kong motivation yung mga taong sumusuporta sa amin para maging mas malakas,” said Du-ot.

“Hindi ko nakuha yung Best Setter, mas pinatunayan ko sa Finals na kayang-kaya kong kunin iyon. Kaya nakuha ko yung Finals MVP po,” the Grade 11 playmaker added.

FEU-Diliman earlier won the high school football and basketball crowns.

Behind Bituin’s heroics, the Baby Tamaraws leveled the series Monday with a 23-25, 25-22, 25-14, 19-25, 15-13.
