Tiebreaker Times Pascua likens PVL POW Kiseo to Pons: 'Ponsing nga tawag ko diyan' FEU News PVL Volleyball  Shiela Kiseo PVL Player of the Week FEU Women's Volleyball 2019 PVL Season 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference

Another rookie sensation is on the rise for the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws.

Shiela Mae Kiseo showed maturity beyond years for the rookie-laden FEU when they took down shorthanded Arellano, 25-13, 22-25, 25-22, 25-10, to strengthen their semifinals chances in Pool B of the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference.

The prized recruit from Cebu delivered 15 points laced with 14 digs, to help the Lady Tamaraws earn their second straight victory in three games.

After displaying her versatile play and giving her squad a pivotal win, Kiseo was hailed as the Sports Vision PVL Collegiate Conference Player of the Week.

Kiseo stood out among Ateneo’s Jaja Maraguinot, UST’s Eya Laure, Adamson’s Ceasa Piñar, CSB’s Klarisa Abriam, and Letran’s Chamberlaigne Cuñada for the weekly award handed out by reporters from print and online covering the league.

Because of the rookie’s impressive attacking and good floor defense, FEU head coach George Pascua said the young open spiker is like a little like Bernadeth Pons.

“‘Ponsing’ nga tawag ko diyan. Parang maliit na Pons,” said Pascua on Kiseo.

“The way she’s playing, nakikita mo ‘yung potential talaga eh. Parang nakakita ka ng maliit na Pons.”

Since FEU lost their campaign opener, the former star of University of San Jose-Recoletos – who had a one-and-done stint with FEU-Diliman – has stepped up as a go-to-scorer. And in the process, she has led her team into forcing a three-way logjam at the no. 2 spot in Pool B with the Lady Chiefs and the Lady Blazers.

“Gusto ko yung tapang at puso nung bata, yung character niya,” said Pascua.
