    Though the Ateneo Blue Eagles and the San Beda Red

    Lions are the ones ranked one and two, I, Jhocson Univ.

    Bloodhounds, am putting my money on the Univ. of the

    East Red Warriors to win this high-stakes tournament.

    Let’s admit it, UE won the first Champion’s League,


    most of the off season tournaments. Either winning

    or going to the finals and placing a respectable

    The new format makes the PCCL more exciting and credible. Its more exciting as many provincial teams are given the opportunity to play against the marquee teams of Manila. It is also more credible as the inclusion crieria have been drastically changed. The preposterous automatic seeding of top Manila teams has been done away with.

    Now, if a team is not a Champion or a srong runner-up, they have to enter the eliminations for a seat in the sweet 16. In the past the top 4 teams of the NCAA And the UAAP were automatically seeded and the remaining 8 other teams chosen using vague and nebulous criteria.

    Then in the past, after the NCAA and UAAP wars, the CCl was just an exhibition league with many top teams not taking the games seriously. An example was last year’s games. UAAP Champ DLSU didn’t even bother to show up. NCAA runner-up CSJL likewisw didn’t suit up for the games. I think only SBC and the UV Lancers took the games seriously. Even eventual champion ADMU Blue Eagles played lackadaisically but surprised no one when they won.

    Now every team and every player is taking things to heart and fighting to win every game. The 500,000 pesos to be split among the members of the winning team is a lot of moolah. This monetary stimulus has turned this year’s PCCL from a ho-hum exhibiton series to a legitimate league.

    For the first time in its history, the winner of the 2008 PCCL series will leave no doubt in any basketball fan’s mind that the the winner is truly, indeed, and without doubt, the best collegiate team in the Philippines.
