The two schools' basketball teams figured prominently in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) during the 1990s. UST defeated La Salle in the finals for four consecutive seasons (1993-1994 to 1996-1997). La Salle met UST again in the finals in 1999, but in that series, the Archers emerged triumphant.
The rivalry died down in recent years as Ateneo de Manila University dominated the league winning 5 consecutive championships.
Rappler talks to members of the 1990s winning squads from both DLSU and UST.
From La Salle is Don Allado - then dubbed "The King Archer," Allado led La Salle in their conquest of UST in the 1999 finals.
From UST is Siot Tanquincen - a role player during the Tigers' four-peat in the early 90s lead by Dennis Espino.
