La Salle–UST rivalry

The rivalry between De La Salle University-Manila Green Archers and the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Growling Tigers is contested at the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). Although the men's basketball rivalry had died down after the 90s, it has been back in limelight in 2013 as both schools again met in the UAAP basketball championship series. The rivalry had also been apparent in women's volleyball where the two teams are frequent finalists in the UAAP Volleyball Championship and the Shakey's V-League.[1]

Prior to La Salle joining the UAAP the two schools met in the championship of the 1948–49 season of the National Seniors Open, a yearly tournament of top collegiate and commercial teams in the country. La Salle defeated UST in overtime to win the title.[2]

The rivalry returned on consecutive UAAP Finals series in men's basketball. La Salle was defeated three consecutive years in the Finals from 1994 through 1996 capping UST's 4 year title run. UST was finally dethroned by La Salle during the 1997 semifinals. In 1998 La Salle again eliminated UST in the semifinals to begin their own four-year championship run. La Salle bounced back defeating UST in overtime for the 1999 UAAP basketball title. The Game 1 finals victory was their last against La Salle until 2007 when UST won in overtime during regular season; La Salle went on to win the 2007 UAAP title. At this point, UST's basketball program regressed, but they won in 2006 when La Salle was suspended after admitting they had unknowingly fielded two ineligible players.[3] La Salle would then win all games until 2011. La Salle again defeated UST in overtime during the UAAP 76 basketball championship in 2013.

The rivalry carried over to women's volleyball in the UAAP and Shakey's V-League, where UST and La Salle met thrice in the Finals, with UST winning the first and La Salle winning the latter two.[4]

Since 1988, La Salle leads the men's basketball rivalry 31–28, although they're tied at playoff games 8–8. If the forfeited games are reversed, the head-to-head record is 38–22 for La Salle.

Men's basketball results[edit]

Both teams are guaranteed to face each other at the elimination round (regular season) twice, while they can meet for a maximum of three times in the playoffs.

The games were played consistently from 1986 until 2006 when La Salle was suspended for fielding two ineligible players.

UST and La Salle previously met each other when they were members of the NCAA from 1924 to 1936.
