    EYA Laure took over when University of Santo Tomas needed it the most, imposing her will in its 26-24, 22-25, 25-27, 25-23, 15-12 five-set classic over La Salle Thursday at Mall of Asia Arena.

    The third-year open hitter dropped 28 points from 23 attacks, three aces, and two blocks to complete the Tigresses' impressive 6-1 finish and cap off the come-from-behind win.

    How fitting is it that it was Laure who delivered the exclamation point, blocking Baby June Soreno's hit to deliver the emphatic coup de grace in the match that lasted for two hours and 50 minutes.

    She also was the one responsible for UST forcing the decider after a nip-and-tuck fourth set before taking the 25-23 set win, on top of her 20 excellent digs and 19 excellent receptions.
