Lycha Ebon drops 21 points to lift FEU past gritty UE

If one thing is certain in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament, it would be that this class of rookies are high-caliber.

From the excellent showing of UST’s Eya Laure and DLSU’s Jolina dela Cruz, FEU’s rookie Lycha Ebon will not just go down without giving these two rookies a good fight.

The 19-year-old Ebon dropped 21 big points, including the game-winning point, and led FEU to survive a gritty fightback from the University of the East squad in five sets, 25-15, 24-26, 25-22, 20-25, 15-19, today at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Originally from Davao City, the opposite spiker hustled for 17 attacks, three aces, and a block to improve FEU’s standing at 3-2 for the solo fourth. Teammate Celine Domingo racked nine kills, six blocks, and two aces to help Ebon in the scoring department.

The loss sends the Lady Warriors at the bottom of the standings with 1-4 slate.
