    JAJA Santiago was surprised to know that she was the MVP for the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament.

    The outgoing National University star said on Tuesday that her MVP bet was Far Eastern University spiker Bernadeth Pons.

    Santiago, who led Foton to a third place finish in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix, deflected the credit and explained why she thought that Pons deserved the top honor.

    “Sabi ko nga ang MVP award na ‘yun bonus na lang sa akin ngayong UAAP Season 80 kasi sabi ko hindi ko naman ine-expect na mage-MVP ako,” she said.

    “Sabi ko nga special mention ko siya (Pons) kasi nakita naman natin nadala niya ang team niya sa Finals and sobrang laki ng contribution niya at ‘yung effort niya para sa team niya,” she added.

      While Pons did not receive any individual award, in Santiago’s book she’s the real MVP.

      “Oo akala ko si Pons talaga ‘yung magiging MVP,” she said.

      Pons will try to save FEU and extend the best-of-three Finals series against treble-seeking La Salle on Wednesday.

      Meanwhile, Santiago credited her teammates for her individual award.

      “Unang-una sa lahat syempre it’s a great honor na maging MVP ako,” she said. 

      “(Pero) it’s a team effort pa rin, tinulungan nila ako doon sa award na ‘yun, tinulungan nila ako na makuha ko ‘yung award na ‘yun. Credits pa rin sa teammates ko,” she added.
