Since quarantine restrictions had to be enforced due to the COVID019 pandemic, the world of collegiate sports halted and the widely anticipated UAAP games was abruptly canceled mid-season.

Months after, UAAP's broadcast partner ABS-CBN was faced with an internationally publicized shutdown after lawmakers voted against the renewal of its franchise. On October 23, however, the UAAP has issued an official statement regarding a new broadcasting partnership with Cignal TV. The news sparked hopes that the collegiate sports league would make a comeback soon.

While college sports fans and athletes alike wait for official news regarding UAAP's return, let's have a look back at some of the courtisde casters that have been with us through our teams' wins and losses throughout the years:

Rain Matienzo - AdU

Rain Matienzo became Adamson University’s courtside reporter for Season 82. Now, Rain is a TikTok-famous content creator best known for her conyo girl POVs. She’s also currently taking up Broadcast Communication at UP Diliman.
