The 3-time UAAP defending Champions Ateneo Blue Eagles has once again proved that they have the best collegiate basketball program in the Philippines by beating the Adamson Falcons in game 3 of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) best of 3 finals. Game 3 was very close from start to finish and ended with Ateneo on top 73-67. Kirk Long and Nico Salva paced the Eagles with 25 and 24 points each. Ateneo won P500,000 worth of sports equipment while Adamson was awarded 200,000.
caloycomment: Good job, Eagles!!! I never expected it to go to three games although I would have just preferred a one game, do or die finals just like the US NCAA. The defeat was definitely a tough loss to swallow for the fast rising Falcons. I expect more exciting games in the 2011 edition.
