Episode 17: Final Four games of the Blue Eagles and the Lady Eagles against FEU
It's Final Four time! For like the nth time, we will be facing FEU. I think this is becoming traditional already. Anyway, the Blue Eagles are at a disadvantage as they will be facing FEU with a twice to beat advantage but last year, we were faced with the same situation so hopefully we can do it again this year. The Lady Eagles meanwhile earned the top spot and has a twice to beat advantage against FEU but FEU just won their last game against La Salle so let's see how this will factor in the Final Four.
