Here's Marck Espejo's entire 55-point performance against FEU.
The Ateneo Blue Eagles needed a hero Saturday afternoon after going down 1-2 in their UAAP season 80 volleyball Final Four match-up vs second-seed Far Eastern University.
Four-time MVP Marck Espejo assumed that heroes’ role for Ateneo, and them some as he dropped an absurd 55 points in a Herculean effort to keep the Blue Eagles’ four-peat hopes alive.
Espejo turned in his career-high behind 47 attacks, six blocks, and two service aces in a dazzling performance that helped Ateneo outlast the Tamaraws, 18-25, 25-13, 24-26, 25-23, 15-9.
The graduating spiker’s 55th point even sealed the Game 1 victory for Ateneo to help force a series decider that has a trip to the Finals on the line.
His performance was labelled as “God-like” and “mythic” by S+A announcers Anton Roxas and Ronnie Magsanoc respectively. Witness history below with Espejo’s entire 55-point performance, contained in 18 action-packed minutes.
