When The Green collide with The Blue, people tune in—see, we don't even need to say this is about La Salle and Ateneo in the UAAP.
For the players involved, there’s more on the line than just another mark in the win-loss column. Terms like “school pride,” “historic rivalry,” and the like get thrown around in the discussion. For the viewers, it’s not just a chance to see college ballers playing with added resolve. It is also a good time to play a bit of celebrity-spotting.
So when these Blue Eagles and Green Archers played last Saturday, their first meeting in UAAP Season 75, we tuned in. In return we got treated to an intense game that saw a near-comeback from La Salle after trailing much of the game, only to fall short and lose to Ateneo, 71-61. In case you didn’t see it, the photos below should get you up to date.
