Valdez saved her best for last this week, torching La Salle for 24 points in a virtuoso performance.
For the second straight season, the Ateneo Lady Eagles emerged as the number 1 team after the elimination round of the UAAP women's volleyball tournament.
You can't thank two-time MVP Alyssa Valdez for that.
The Lady Eagles wrapped up their regular season with six straight wins, including two this week that also saw the champs get even with rival La Salle after five spectacular sets at the Mall of Asia Arena Sunday.
In those two games, Valdez, Ateneo's graduating ace, put up impressive numbers as per usual.
The Queen Eagles had a workout against UE last Wednesday, finishing with 17 points in just 63 minutes of court time.
She then saved her best for last against the Lady Spikers Sunday, torching La Salle for 24 points in a virtuoso performance.
A pair of another high-scoring games gives Valdez the honor as ABS-CBN Sports' UAAP Volleyball Player of the Week.
Super rookie Isa Molde from the University of the Philippines is the runner-up this week.
In their final game of the regular season, Molde helped the Lady Maroons secure at least a playoff for the Final Four after dropping 23 points on the UST Tigresses, including the game-winning hit in set 4.
