MANILA, Philippines—De La Salle played true to form and steamrolled Adamson, 25-21, 25-20, 25-14, in the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.

Rookie Leiah Malaluan proved she was no fluke as she and Jolina dela Cruz anchored La Salle’s show of force with 12 points apiece.

Malaluan’s solid outing came just two days after her rousing debut in Thursday’s opener.

Dela Cruz scored all of her points off attacks while also posting 11 excellent digs.

Flaunting a vaunted defense, the Lady Spikers stifled the Lady Falcons with nine block points to none.

La Salle climbed to 2-0 after it dispatched rival and defending champion Ateneo in four sets to kick off its campaign.
