The so-called “Battle of Katipunan” has spilled over social media as netizens adopt photo filters to seal their support to UAAP Season 81’s men’s basketball finals contenders – University of the Philippines (UP) and Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU).

Photo filters “UP Fight” and “Ateneo One Big Fight” dominate profile pictures of supporters days before UP and ADMU’s initial finals face-off this Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.
