After losing to the DLSU Green Archers in their rivalry game in the first round of UAAP Season 85, the Ateneo Blue Eagles came back hungry in round two. Winning 68-54, the boys in blue ended their revenge match comfortably, as La Salle suffered their fourth straight defeat.
But, as you may know, the rivalry doesn’t end when the clock runs out. We still have one more game to play: Which team served the best looks in the tunnel?
Let’s start off with the top three outfits of our game winners, the Blue Eagles.
1. Dave Ildefonso
What we’re loving about Dave’s look: The simple tee with the baggy jeans makes for a relaxed look—not worried at all about the rivalry game (or so it appears).
The GAME’s favorite part: The yellow laces stole our attention.
2. Forthsky Padrigao
What we’re loving about Forthsky’s look: You can never go wrong with a simple, relaxed look. Plus, we love the words Forthsky’s repping on his tee.
The GAME’s favorite part: Haven’t you heard? Tote bags are so in.
3. Kai Balungay
What we’re loving about Kai’s look: He channeled the Manny Pacquiao champion energy on his shirt onto the court, scoring 11 points for the team.
The GAME’s favorite part: Orange definitely pops.
Now, let’s see if the top three looks from the DLSU bench can compete.
1. Ben Phillips
What we’re loving about Ben’s look: Ben’s ever-reliable he-means-business look.
The GAME’s favorite part: The shades make a world of a difference.
2. Bright Nwankwo
What we’re loving about Bright’s look: While Ben Phillips comes in dressed like a CEO, we love how Bright gives off college athlete energy—as he should!
The GAME’s favorite part: The classic varsity jacket (in green, no less).
3. Mike Phillips
What we’re loving about Mike’s look: Another Phillips brother dressed in black, head to toe.
The GAME’s favorite part: Honestly, our favorite part is how this looks like the street-edition of his brother’s outfit.
So what’s your verdict? Does La Salle redeem themselves in their pre-game outfits, or does Ateneo walk away the winner of both the on-court and in-style games?
