Laure was an MVP candidate and the league’s top scorer in Season 84 with 272 points as UST finished No. 3 with a 9-5 record.
However, the Tigresses were eliminated by the No. 4 Ateneo Blue Eagles in the stepladder semifinals.
The 2019 UAAP rookie of the year, who led UST to the finals with Sisi Rondina three years ago, is returning with Imee Hernandez, Maji Mangulabnan, Yssa Jimenez, Ypril Tapia, and Camille Victoria.
