Eya Laure erupted for a big game to steer University of Santo Tomas to a stunning 25-19, 14-25, 25-18, 25-12 upset victory against erstwhile-undefeated De La Salle University in UAAP Season 85 women’s volleyball tournament on Sunday.

Her high-octane performances, including in the game against La Salle, netted Laure the Collegiate Press Corps UAAP Player of the Week presented by the San Miguel Corporation and Philippine Sports Commission from March 29 to April 2.

The veteran open spiker dropped 29 points as the Golden Tigresses handed the Lady Spikers their first taste of loss after nine games while UST improved to 7-3.

Against University of the East earlier in the week, Laure also finished with 17 points to carry UST back to the win column.

The second-generation sports star emerged as the unanimous choice among print and online journalists covering the beat. Laure edged fellow Tigress Detdet Pepito for the award as well as former Player of the Week winner Angel Canino of La Salle.

FEU’s Chenie Tagaod, NU’s Bella Belen, and Adamson’s Kate Santiago were the other nominees for the weekly plum.

“Kailangan talaga, para makakuha ng panalo, kailangan magwork as a team. Yun talaga yung parang isa sa mga learnings ko,” Laure said.

(“To get the win, we really needed to work as a team, that’s one of my learnings.”)

Laure and the Golden Tigresses will hope to keep the momentum going even after the Holy Week break when they return to action on April 15, Saturday, against the Ateneo Blue Eagles.
