MANILA, Philippines – In a show of sportsmanship, a building of the De La Salle University was lit up in blue on Sunday night, December 3, shortly after the De La Salle Green Archers lost to their archrivals, the Ateneo Blue Eagles, in the UAAP Season 80 men's basketball finals.
Photos showing the St La Salle Building bathed in blue light quickly went viral.
