(SPOT.ph) It finally happened. Nearly four decades after their last win in 1986, the University of the Philippines are once again the UAAP Championship title holders. The game between the UP Fighting Maroons and the Ateneo Blue Eagles ended with an intense 72-69 overtime win on Friday, May 13 (yup, Friday the 13th), at the Mall of Asia Arena. 

Sliding in to the limelight was steady guard JD Cagulangan, currently the talk of the town and for good reason. The 36-year wait for victory was finally realized the moment he landed a history-making three-pointer in the last few seconds of the game, ending Ateneo's hold on the title. 

The win could not have come at a much better time, and one peek at Twitter proves it. Top trends include #UPFight, #UAAPFinals, Cagulangan (of course) and more. From folks celebrating the long-awaited win to people reliving the best, most intense moments, "healthy" trash-talkan,  and yup, just plain freaking out, we round it up here.
