The Blazers were formerly a member National Capital Region Athletic Association(NCRAA) before they applied and were admitted to the NCAA in 1998. They then went on to win their first NCAA seniors basketball title in 2000 was the fastest for an expansion squad.
The other seniors varsity teams may also be referred to as the Blazers. The juniors team are the Greenies of La Salle Green Hills, while the women's teams (volleyball and taekwondo) are the St. Benilde Lady Blazers.
Almost all sports program of the Blazers excel in their events, leading to the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde winning its first General Championship honors in NCAA Season 81, and another one in NCAA Season 83.
When De La Salle University-Manila selected De La Salle-Santiago Zobel School as its junior affiliate team when it entered the UAAP in 1986, La Salle Green Hills was left without a membership in either the UAAP or the NCAA, thus starting a 17-year drought in a major collegiate league since its formal withdrawal from the NCAA in 1981.
De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, a member school of the De La Salle University System, applied for admission to the NCAA through the efforts of then System President Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC, the Greenies was selected as the junior team by then LSGH President Br. Bernard Oca FSC. Both De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde and La Salle Green Hills were admitted to the NCAA in 1998.
The La Salle Greenies (officially the CSB-LSGH Greenies) is the junior affiliate team of the St. Benilde Blazers. Since DLS-CSB is not directly connected with its high school affiliate, except that they are both administered by the Lasallian Brothers. As a result, LSGH labels "St. Benilde" instead of "La Salle" on their jerseys.
In contrast to their men's junior counterparts, DLSZ represents College of St. Benilde in the WNCAA since the NCAA didn't have women's basketball in their scheme.
However, the Stags avenged their defeat and defeated the Blazers in the Finals of 2002. The Golden Stags, led by graduating players Christian Coronel, Nurjanjam Alfad, Paul Reguerra, Roy Falcasantos, and Bernardo Mercado, swept the Blazers, 2-0. Mercado later joined the SSC-R's coaching staff as an assistant coach. Leomar Najorda was adjudged as the 2002 NCAA Finals MVP.
Their junior counterparts, LSGH, won two (2) General Championships as De La Salle College and the other eight (8) General Championship as LSGH. As the DLS-CSB juniors team, LSGH won three (3) General Championships.
De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde served hosting rights for the first time in 2006-2007 season of the NCAA, with the theme “Proud and True at 82: Blazing Beyond Limits.” Under the leadership of the Sports and Development Office (SDO), the Benildean community flocked to fill the Araneta Coliseum at opening day. The number of Benildeans in the arena was only rivaled by that of the NCAA 2000 finals, as the Dome was rocked by chants of "Animo Benilde!".
The College will again host the NCAA after one rotation, in Season 89 (2013).
Blazie, the official mascot of the 82nd NCAA season, was created by DLS-CSB Multimedia Arts Student and Marketing Communications Office (MCO) student staff Charmaine Collen Hao.
Since the inception of the event, the CSB Pep Squad has always last in placed (7th) from 2004 and 2005, were suspended by the school in 2006, 6th in 2007, and then went on to place their highest rank ever as 2nd runner-up in 2008.
Select members of the CSB Pep Squad, along with the DLSU and DLSZ Pep Squads, performed together at halftime of Game 1 of the Ateneo-La Salle UAAP Finals on September 18, 2008, in commemoration of St. Benilde's 20th anniversary, Zobel's 30th anniversary, and the incoming centennial anniversary of La Salle in the Philippines in 2011.
