NU Lady Bulldogs' Bella Belen said that she's overcoming her nagging back pain by displaying immense mental strength.

The injury limited Belen to a career-low two points against Ateneo in the UAAP Season 86 women's volleyball tournament.

Belen's mindset worked well as she bounced back with 14 points, 14 receptions, and seven digs on Sunday, April 14 at the Mall of Asia Arena, where the Bulldogs defeated the defending champs De La Salle Lady Spikers, 22-25, 25-23, 25-16, 25-22. VIDEO BY NIEL VICTOR MASOY
