Tunnel Vision: The Best Looks From The Epic DLSU vs. UP Finals Series

It was DLSU and UP’s first finals date in the UAAP, and both teams made sure to show up in style throughout the thrilling three-game series.

For the first time in UAAP history, the De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Archers and the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons faced each other in the finals of Season 86, and the cliché applies here — you’ll never forget your first.

The Archers and the Maroons gave Filipino basketball fans — whether they were affiliated with either school or not — a finals series to remember. After UP dominated Game 1 by 30 points, DLSU forced a decider with a 22-point win in Game 2. Thus, Game 3 set a UAAP basketball attendance record, bringing 25,192 fans into Araneta Coliseum on a Wednesday evening, and they all got to witness the Archers‘ first UAAP championship win since 2016.

Everyone knew it was going to be the finale of a lifetime, including the players. So, they had to show up looking ready for the fight of a lifetime. Here are the best UAAP finals looks of the UP Fighting Maroons and DLSU Green Archers.
