UAAP Season 68 was the 2005–2006 season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines. Several events were held, the most prominent was the basketball tournament. The tournament is divided into three divisions: the Juniors tournament for high school students, the Women's tournament for female college students, and the Men's tournament for male college students

The FEU Tamaraws swept the defending champions La Salle Green Archers, 2 games to none in the Men's tournament to take their record-breaking 19th title, with Arwind Santos as the Finals MVP. It was a rematch of the 2004 Final, where the Archers prevailed, 2–1.

In the juniors division, the De La Salle Zobel Junior Archers swept the UPIS Junior Maroons, 2–0, to take their first UAAP title. It was also La Salle's first Juniors title since the 1955 La Salle Green Hills championship in the NCAA.

In the Women's tournament, the Ateneo Lady Eagles swept the Adamson Lady Falcons, 2 games to none, to win their first UAAP women's title. The Lady Eagles snapped the Lady Falcons' two year title run.

Suspension of De La Salle University-Manila[edit]

Controversy surrounded the UAAP after De La Salle University-Manila (DLSU) discovered that two members of its men's basketball team were ineligible to play in the UAAP from the 2003-2004 up to the 2005-2006 season. The players failed Department of Education's Philippine Educational Placement Test Certificate of Rating (PEPTCR, a replacement for a high school diploma). The University has offered to return the 2004 championship and 2005 runner-up trophy and file a leave of absence from the league.

In its meeting on April 21, 2006 in Adamson University, members of the UAAP Board unanimously decided to suspend DLSU in all sports events of the UAAP for the entire 2006–2007 season as a consequence of the university's negligence and inaction against the two ineligible players.

The board has also forfeited all of La Salle's men's basketball games from 2003 to 2004. The board awarded the 2004 title to FEU as a result.

If the forfeited games are factored in, the final elimination round standings is:

Team W L
FEU Tamaraws 12 2
Ateneo Blue Eagles 12 2
UE Red Warriors 11 3
UP Fighting Maroons 7 7
UST Growling Tigers 6 8
Adamson Soaring Falcons 5 9
NU Bulldogs 3 11
La Salle Green Archers 0 14

All of La Salle's victories in the playoffs were also forfeited; if La Salle won the 2005 title, they would've surrendered back the trophy to the finals opponents, FEU.
