There can only be one

Good luck to the 16 different schools that comprise the sweet 16 and I hope that this year will be the start when all schools in the country will truly honor the best collegiate team in the nation.

 Just some trivia with this year’s Philippine Collegiate Championships. 

  1. The defending champion and favored to win it all is the Ateneo Blue Eagles, UE and FEU won the CCL twice, will Ateneo be the third team to win it twice?
  2. The returnees from last year’s sweet 16 are Ateneo, DLSU, UE, FEU, San Beda, Mapua, UV,  MLQU & Lyceum. Teams from last year that did not make it this year are UST, STI, San Sebastian College, Sacred Heart, West Negros, University of Mindanao
  3. There are two Recoletos teams which come from the same order, the Order of Agustinian Recolets. The teams are the  San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite and University of  San Jose Recoletos.
  4. There are three teams that came from the CESAFI UV, University of San Jose and University of San Carlos
  5. If the Arellano Chiefs and Mapua Cardinals meet, what team will coach Leo Isaac Coach?

 Sweet 16 Schedule, All Games will be played at the San juan Arena

November 24, 2008

  1. Ateneo de Manila vs. Lyceum of the Philippines
  2. San Beda  College vs. University of San Jose Recoletos

November 26, 2008

  1. Manuel Luis Quezon University vs. Mapua Institue of Technology
  2. De La Salle University vs. University of San Carlos

November 27, 2008

  1. Universal College of Nursing vs. Arellano Chiefs
  2. University of the East vs. University of Visayas

November 29, 2008

  1. San Sebastian College Cavite vs. Letran College
  2. Jose Rizal University vs. Far Eastern University

I pick Ateneo, DLSU, San Beda, UE, Mapua and Arellano breezing through the first round. If there is an upset in the making it would have to San Sebastian Cavite if ever they make it past the Letran Knights.  The best match up would have to be Jose Rizal University against Far Eastern University with the Tamaraws most likely to advance.
