The Ateneo Blue Eagles drew first blood on Game 1 of the UAAP Basketball Men’s Finals against long-time rivals De La Salle Archers. It was a game marked by fierce competition and some interesting sidelights. In anticipation of tonight’s Game 2, what better way to recap Game 1’s highlights than by featuring some of Twitterverse’s commentators and their concise reportage?

That’s where he went (part 2)

No pictures, though. We’ll just have to wait until the Senate files a Resolution investigating the elbow in aid of legislation.

Who gets it tonight? Tell us your thoughts below!
