MANILA, Philippines—John Paul Mangahis flashed his all-around game, as University of the East stretched its winning run to three after downing titleholder National University Nazareth School, 25-20, 25-23, 25-17, in UAAP Season 82 boys volleyball at Paco Arena Wednesday.

Mangahis finished with 11 points, 10 excellent receptions and seven digs to power the Junior Warriors to their seventh victory in eight matches.

"Although meron akong players na may iniinda, nagawa pa rin naman nila 'yung roles nila, nagma-mature na 'yung mga players ko sa paglalaro," said UE coach Raffy Mosuela.

Joshua Espenida also shone for the Junior Warriors with 10 points on eight spikes and two service aces.

UE started the third set 15-5 to pull away for good.

Michael Fortuna and Arvin Bandola poured in 11 and 10 points, respectively, for the Bullpups, who slid to 4-5 for fifth place.

Three games are slated at the same venue in Paco on Saturday.
