‘Battle of Katipunan’ turns into ‘battle of memes’
The Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles are set to defend their University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) men’s basketball crown against the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons 3 p.m. today at the Mall of Asia Arena, in the finals that’s being dubbed “Battle of Katipunan.”
This will be the Fighting Maroons’ first finals appearance since 1987, while the Blue Eagles, their neighbors on the opposite side of Katipunan, are looking to bring home the UAAP trophy for the 10th time.
Fans had a blast online after UP emerged victorious against Adamson in the overtime thriller on Wednesday.
Whatever the outcome of this year’s UAAP men’s basketball championship, it will surely be remembered for years to come.
