You know the attention shifts to the Final Four when spots are starting to get filled already.
The UAAP Season 82 men’s basketball tournament has officially entered Final Four time and while that’s a little sad because it means the season is now on countdown, it’s also great because games are about to get even more exciting.
Season 82 has already been crazy as it is, what happens when games get better?
With that being said, it’s time to sneak in another By the Numbers before a crucial week begins for our favorite collegiate hoop heroes.
Team already in the Final Four... and it’s the champion Blue Eagles.
With a clean 10-0 mark, Ateneo is first to the next round this season and they did it at the expense of rival La Salle. The question now is can the Blue Eagles finish with a sweep or will we have a traditional Final Four.
