VARSITY HEAT: Finals Fire

The final two weeks of the collegiate leagues did not disappoint.

The UST Growling Tiger went all the way from the fourth seed and made a return trip to the Finals. The Letran Knights did nearly the same, going from third seed to the Finals.

The Knights completed their mission. They took down the undefeated San Beda Red Lions in three games to capture the NCAA crown. Unfortunately, the Growling Tigers could not replicate the same result. UST fell to a dominant Ateneo Blue Eagles team that swept their way to history.

The Finals from brought drama, action and a whole lot of fire on the players’ feet. For the final Varsity Heat of the year, here are the best of the best from the UAAP and NCAA Finals.

The Finals just wouldn’t be the same without some Js. And Mike Nieto was packing some heat. He was #TeamEarly with the 2019 release of the Jordan 11 ‘Bred’.
