It wasn’t too long ago when Myla Pablo ended her UAAP career in frustration and disappointment after failing to lead NU into the Final Four.
A couple of months after, she’s a champion and a Finals MVP to boot.
The high-scoring Tarlac native was named best player of the championship round after powering Pocari Sweat to the 13th Shakey’s V-League Open crown Monday night at the Philsports Arena.
Pablo fired 23 points spiked by 21 hits as the Lady Warriors erased a one-match deficit to win the best-of-3 series.
Coach Rommel Abella lauded his ward for coming through in the finals, noting that he saw a different aura from Pablo as the playoffs began.
