Mika Reyes of the DLSU Green Spikers, whose team won in an impressive 3-0 game against defending champion Ateneo Lady Eagles at the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Volleyball Season 78 on Saturday, February 27, has nothing personal against rival Alyssa Valdez, now girlfriend of her “ex” Kiefer Ravena, former team captain of the Ateneo Blue Eagles.
“It’s nothing,” said Reyes in an interview with ABS-CBN Sports.
The issue stemmed after Reyes was allegedly caught on camera staring down at Valdez after blocking her spike, and sticking her tongue after turning around to give her teammates a hug.
The scene became a social media trending topic and has spawned a number of memes, among them from popular Facebook page UAAP-NCAA memes.
In one meme, Reyes was seen standing in front of a fallen Valdez with text: “Kumusta mo na lang ako kay Kiefer”.
The meme, which has been liked more than 50 thousand times and shared almost 20 thousand times, has generated a mixbag of reactions from among the two UAAP volleyball stars’ fans, among them:
Mika Reyes to Alyssa Valdez be like:
“Sayo ang Ravena, sa akin ang Korona”
Mas masarap magmahal ang Lasallista yeh
Animo La Salle!
Valdez to Reyes: “You got this game, but sorry I got his heart”

This is very funny. I like them both. Kiefer is out of the picture. For sure sa next game na magkakaharap sila e babawi si valdez. They are both pride of each schools. Keep it up girls
DLSU’s Kim Fajardo scored 13 points for the winning team with a solid support from Reyes with 9 points.
Valdez, on the other hand, scored 11 points, her lowest so far during the season.
After the first round, Ateneo’s Lady Eagles’ nearly flawless performance concluded with a 6-1 record after losing to DLSU.
