Eka Soriano of University of Santo Tomas was named the Most Valuable Player of the UAAP Season 85 women’s basketball tournament on Sunday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

The second-year Growling Tigress ran away with the top individual honors after amassing 92.286 statistical points (SPs).

In the elimination round where the season awards are based, Soriano tallied an all-around 14.36 points, 7.14 assists, 6.29 rebounds, and 3.71 steals.

“Sobrang nakakaproud kasi hindi ko po in-expect ito, bonus lang po ito sa akin,” said the newly-minted MVP.
