Champion's League Final 8 Coming up

Except for the sentimental favorite in me, I almost got all the winners correct in the first round of the Philippine Collegiate Champion's LEague. Ateneo breezed past Lyceum University while San Beda did the same to . De La Salle University and University of the East likewise came out on top as the two finalists of last year's UAAP thrashed University of San Jose Recoletos and University of Visayas respectively. Most intriguing was how the smaller UE team handled the 6-11 giant of UV.
Arellano University capped its season long brilliance by beating the Universal College of Nursing Dragons while Coach Leo Isaac's other team, the Mapua Cardinals gave the MLQU Stallions their pink slip for the tournament. The Letran Knights arranged a final 8 meeting with the FEU Tamaraws. The tamaraws eliminated 2008 NCAA Runner up Jose Rizal University. The final 8 will roll this week with the following games:

Ateneo Blue Blue Eagles vs. Mapua Cardinals
San Beda Red Lions vs. Arellano Chiefs
De la Salle Green Archers vs. University of the East Warriors
FEU Tamaraws vs. Letran Knights

My picks are the teams at the left side. Good luck and just remember that there can only be one!
