UP Street eyes third straight UAAP Streetdance title
Using an array of 90s and current dance mixes, UP Street with its "luksong tinik" theme won last year's UAAP Streetdance title.

The University of the Philippines eyes its third straight streetdance championship on Saturday as a part of another big UAAP Season 78 weekend at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Using an array of 90s and current dance mixes, UP Street with its "luksong tinik" theme, tallied 178 points to claim the bragging rights as the league’s best dance crew last year, besting Company of Ateneo Dancers (167.3) and two-time titlist La Salle Dance Company-Street (167).

With a remarkable mix of hip hop and electronic dance music, Ateneo achieved its best finish in the four-year competition with a clean routine, while La Salle had an impressive Backstreet Boys-inspired performance.

The competition actually returned last season after it was shelved in 2014, and UP Street did not waste the opportunity to extend its reign.

Also eyeing a place in the top three are the UE Armada, Adamson Cast, FEU Dance Company and UST Hype. National University did not field a team this year.

The seven-team event will start at 2:30 p.m. to be aired live on ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23, ABS-CBN Sports+Action HD Channel 166 and http://sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap
