VARSITY HEAT: Highlight-filled end of Elims

After a flurry of games, the UAAP Season 82 Elimination Round is done!

The final day of the Second Round featured a ton of highlights, including the final lucky shot of Rey Suerte’s collegiate career, Jaime Orme’s career-high game to end his one-and-done stint, and Ateneo’s dominant show to get their 14th win.

The highlights weren’t limited to the action during the games. Continuing the trend of loud, colorful sneakers from the last edition of Varsity Heat, this week’s edition also featured several highlighter-hued kicks.

The UP boys weren’t afraid to play with color, as they rocked some bright adidas pairs.

Kobe Paras and Jerrick Ahanmis kept it clean with a couple of adidas pairs in classic color combos. Paras though added a twist with a collab pair and some killer socks.

Thirdy Ravena and the Ateneo Blue Eagles were a scary sight for a lot of the teams this season. It’s only fitting that he rocked some spooky custom kicks before Halloween.

As the Season 82 heads to the postseason, the action on court will be taken to another level. That only means that the sneaker games of the players will surely heat up as well.
