The Sweet 16 is Set
After many months of tournaments and qualifyers, we have the best 16 teams in the country ready for a winner take all National Championship tournament. Ateneo and San Beda of course are still the favorites but with the lose or go home format, it promises to be an exciting set of games.
The most interesting matchups for me in the first round are the two Cebu teams going up against the two UAAP powerhouses UE and DLSU. Another one is the FEU/JRU encounter. This is exactly what we wanted, to see how the UAAP/NCAA top teams fair against the rest of the country's best.
I was born in the Philippines, grew up in Chicago and now back in the Philippines after graduating from college.
I am a media guy having worked extensively both in front of and behind the camera for the biggest TV Networks in the Philippines.
I currently work for the FOX International Channels handling the Philippine Territory.
The Channels I oversee include Star World, Star Movies, ESPN, Star Sports, FX, FOXCrime, Channel V, National Geographic Channel, and FOX among others.
