UAAP Season 80 Finals:
The Drama as it Unfolds
on Social Media
UAAP Season 80’s Men’s Basketball Finals is one for the ages. In a series full of controversies and emotional outbursts from all fronts, the penultimate match between arch rivals Ateneo Blue Eagles and De La Salle Green Archers was void of any of those that came before. Instead, fans were treated to a spectacle. Both teams gave it their all, and in the end it came down to a battle of wills.
And everything was captured on social media. Here is what went down last night, from multiple perspectives:

At the onset, the excitement was quite palpable. Both teams were energized by the support of fans.
truthfully speaking, both teams are capable of bagging that win, but this game is not just about talent it’s about who wants it more #UAAPSeason80Finals
