UAAP Season 81 is the 2018–19 athletic year of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). This season will be hosted by the National University.
After the first round of the UAAP season 81 men’s basketball tournament, Ateneo and Adamson have taken control of the top of the standings.
De La Salle, Far Eastern U, and UST meanwhile, have formed a mini-logjam for the third to fourth spots, while University of the Philippines is barely hanging on.
