MANILA, Philippines – Still have collegiate basketball hangover?
Worry no more as the best of the best are still set to clash for the annual Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) title.
However, the Red Lions now face a tough climb as they no longer have Robert Bolick, Javee Moco, and possibly even Donald Tankoua – the driving forces of their most recent dynastic run.
Meanwhile, the reigning kings of Katipunan only lost starting guard Anton Asistio to graduation. Usual stalwarts Matt and Mike Nieto are still with the team, alongside two-time Finals MVP Thirdy Ravena and newly-crowned Rookie of the Year Angelo Kouame.
The two top-tier teams will clash for the PCCL title in a best-of-three series starting on January 21, 2019, at the Filoil Flying V Centre. – Rappler.com
