15 Best Tweets About Ateneo Winning the UAAP Season 80 Championship
What a game. The Ateneo Blue Eagles won the UAAP Season 80 Men’s Basketball Championship 88-86 against the De La Salle Green Archers yesterday, December 3, 2017 at the Araneta Coliseum.
With Ateneo’s 5-point lead and just a few seconds to go, La Salle still scores a 3-pointer but still leaves the game to the Blue Eagles. Many beautiful things followed after – La Salle lighting up in blue, a thanksgiving mass that was filled to the brim, and students in Shakey’s Katipunan cheering and singing their alma mater. Though this rivalry has been going on since long ago, this year we see the such incredible friendship between the two teams.
Beyond these 20 tweets are wonderful experiences, hardships, and lots and lots of love. It’s more than just a “rivalry” and it’s truly more than just a game. So whether you shout One Big Fight or Animo, in the end we are both grateful for sharing the court with each other one more time.
Here are 20 of the best tweets from the UAAP Season 80 Men’s Basketball Championship Game 3!
1. This incredible fact about Isaac Go
From a few friends and profs in Ateneo, Isaac Go really is a great student. He aces tests and makes his course-mates and teammates proud every day.
Things hard to fathom:
Isaac Go hitting super-clutch threes
Things harder to fathom:
His course is BS Management of Applied Chemistry
