Following the UAAP senior basketball team's semi-finals victory over Adamson Soaring Falcons yesterday (September 19) at Araneta Coliseum, the Ateneo Blue Eagles becomes a current top trending topic on Yahoo Search Philippines.
Their most recent win has effectively brought the defending champions to a finals meet with FEU Tamaraws.
