Old but gold.
Lizlee Ann Gata-Pantone showed why she is still one of the top liberos today as she displayed her vintage form in PayMaya’s straight set victory over Tacloban Fighting Warays, 25-8, 33-31, 25-20, early this afternoon at the San Juan Arena.
The three-time UAAP Best Digger made heads turn and jaws dropped as she showcased her great reading skills in stopping the offense of the likes of Hyapha Amporn, Jovie Prado, and Shola Alvarez.
Volleyball fans took to twitter to give Pantone the recognition she deserves.
Lets take a look at the craziest reactions from the Twitter-verse.
No need for tumblings and dolphin dives. Reading is fundamental – Pantone gaming

If Lizlee Ann Gata-Pantone plays this good even years beyond her prime, just imagine how good she was in UAAP and in her peak.

Drop ball? Not on Gata-Pantone's turf. 😏

Shuta si Pantone! Best in Reading si bakla. Basang basa yung mga palo kaloka. Iba din talaga ang pwestuhan skills ni kumare. #PVLonABSCBN

Pinagaawayan natin kung sinong mas magaling kay Arado at Macandili. Then there’s Pantone.
Sabi niya “wait lang, di niyo ko kilala?”

Hi HC RDJ! Wala ba tayo pahabol na invite jan kay #QueenLiberoPantone?
….seriously mas bet ko Pantone-Arado tandem, 2 greats from diff. generations na hindi kailangan maging stuntwoman at gumawa ng acrobatic dives para lang maka-puto ng bola at magkaron ng game highlights. Haha https://t.co/KfgldgRwZ6
