Waters are now calm and still now that the first semester of the UAAP Season 80 is now over.
Just yesterday, the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles concluded the first half of the UAAP season with a Championship title tucked under their belt, after dethroning the Taft-based squad in the Men’s Basketball category.
Rivalry has always been tangible for Ateneo and La Salle, but has weaned through the years with a friendlier disposition, especially and particularly outside the court.
Last night, right after the battle for the coveted Men’s Basketball title concluded, the facade of the St. La Salle building in Taft Avenue was lighted in blue “to celebrate a good fight”, according to the official Facebook page of De La Salle University.
That’s the Ateneo community standing up to applaud La Salle for winning game 2. They started even before buzzer hit 0. DLSU offered us the same courtesy when we sang our Alma Mater song next.
Don’t let a few outliers ruin the game for you. This place is filled with good people. pic.twitter.com/nqugpskqjz
