The much awaited UAAP Season 76 Men's Basketball Finals has begun!
And the UST Tigers have taken a 1-0 lead via a heart-stopping 73-72 win over the DLSU Archers!
La Salle's 9-game winning streak was also halted by the Growling Tigers, who have overcome the defending champs Ateneo and number one seed NU, to reach this season's Finals.
Kevin Ferrer's hot-shooting and Jeric Teng's veteran composure were key factors in UST's triumph.
This is the fifth time that USTe and La Salle is squaring off in the UAAP Finals.
The Tigers won three consecutive times in 2004-2006 while the Archers slammed UST in their 2009 match-up.
Will it be payback time for the Green Archers, who last won the Championship in 2007?
Or will the Growling Tigers repeat their Cinderella finish in 2006, when they beat Ateneo despite being the underdogs?
