NU and Adamson started off the UAAP Season 76 Men's Volleyball tournament on the right foot after defeating DLSU and FEU respectively.

Last year’s Finals MVP, Peter Torres and two-time UAAP Beach Volleyball MVP, Edwin Tolentino tallied 11 points apiece to pace the Bulldogs. Open spiker Berlin Paglinawan also played a splendid game as he finished with 10 markers for NU.

The Green Spikers were led by fourth year player Red Christensen who scattered 8 points in a losing effort.
