College Fashionistas Shine At The UAAP Finals

Cosmo caught girls looking chic as they cheered for their schools in this intense battle on the basketball court, rain or shine.
Students, alumni, and supporters of the Ateneo de Manila University junior and senior Men's Basketball teams have TWO major reasons to party, as both teams emerged champs of their respective divisions in the UAAP today, October 8, at the Big Dome.

Both coming from a Game Two setback, the Blue Eagles to the University of The East Red Warriors and the Eaglets to the De La Salle Zobel team, the big men of the blue camp had to step up to ensure this year's TWO big victories. The Blue Eagles defended their crown with a 71-58 win over the Red Warriors, marking back-to-back championships for the team and coach Norman Black.
