NU rides MVP tandem of Nabor-Santiago en route to perfect run.
Jaja Santiago was the unstoppable force while Jasmine Nabor kept National University's engine running like a well-oiled machine.
Nabor, the placid playmaker, set the table for Santiago and the rest of the Lady Bulldogs' power hitters like Aiko Urdas and Risa Sato, who more often than not finished off her well-placed sets in emphatic fashion.
The 18-year-old Nabor was at her best in the grandest stage as she and Santiago led NU to a finals sweep of Far Eastern University in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference.
Nabor had 46 excellent sets in Game 1 on Wednesday before putting up 45 on Saturday while Santiago unleashed 55 points in the finals duel.
Nabor wound up with the Finals MVP award on the exact same night that Santiago was officially named conference MVP.
