MVP: Alyssa Valdez explodes as Ateneo forces Game 3

And we’re going to a Game 3.

Ateneo kept its 3-peat hopes alive after coming back from the dead to beat La Salle in 5 thrilling sets in Game 2 of the UAAP women’s volleyball finals Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Lady Eagles wasted 4 set points in the second set, but recovered in the next three frames to essay the epic 18-25, 26-28, 25-17, 25-16, 15-11 victory in front of more than 20, 000 fans at the venue.

Moments after being named UAAP MVP for the third straight time, Alyssa Valdez turned in a monster performance for the Katipunan side.
