The Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) is down to its final 16 teams. The tournament will try to find the best college squad in the Philippines. This tournament will showcase the best teams of Manila battle the underrated quintets from the provinces. After the tough zonals, the cast of the Sweet 16 is final complete.
The Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Incorporated (CESAFI), will host the first matches of this stage. Four Visayan teams will slug it out a berth in the Final 4. The University of Cebu Webmasters, University of the Visayas Green Lancers, University of San Carlos Warriors, and the University of Ilo-Ilo, are the 4 representatives of the Visayas and Mindanao in the Sweet 16. The other Sweet 16 match-ups to be played in Cebu will pit Far Eastern University Tamaraws against the Jose Rizal University Bombers. The games will be held at the Cebu Coliseum.
caloycomment: Hopefully teams from the Visayas will make a dent on the Manila dominance of college basketball. I expect this tourney to be the coming out party of Cebuano behemoth Junmar Fajardo.
