University of Santo Tomas rookie wunderkind Eya Laure could possibly miss the Golden Tigresses’ remaining PVL Collegiate Conference elimination round match against UAAP rivals Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws to rest an injured right shoulder.
Laure, UST’s leading scorer, had suffered a right shoulder injury weeks before the tournament started.
The 19-year old opposite hitter then dislocated the shoulder twice before their match against the CSB Lady Blazers last August 11.
The 5-foot-8 spiker played against the Lady Blazers, but sat out UST’s loss to the Adamson Lady Falcons Saturday, after she was advised to give her shoulder more time to heal.
“Okay naman na siya, medyo kailangan lang talaga ipahinga,” she told reporters.
Laure will still fly to Cagayan De Oro when the Tigresses take on the Lady Tamaraws on August 25. However, it is highly unlikely that she will see the court, as UST have already clinched a spot in the semifinals with a 5-1 record.
“To be honest, sobrang hirap niya kasi ‘yung tipong gusto mong tumulong pero hindi puwede kasi kailangang i-respect ko ang decision ni coach na magpahinga ako itong game na ito,” she expressed.
“Nakakalungkot din kasi alam kong hindi ko pwedeng i-overrule yung decision nila coach.”
