We're going to the Finals!

Finally, the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles once again takes a trip to the Finals of the UAAP Men's Basketball Division. It will once again test the coaching power of Norman Black, who was tested once during the 2006 blowout to the UST Growling Tigers.

It's ticket-hording time again for our beloved scalpers as they will probably hit big on Sunday because it will be another epic battle of the Eagles against its long-time arch-rival, the De La Salle Green Archers. Playing with heart and full of energy, the Green Archers are planning to defend their championship against the seemingly invincible lineup of the Blue Eagles.

The Eagles are planning to regain its glory after 6 years of championship drought. The last time they claimed championship was in 2002, when the Blue Eagles produced top-caliber players like Enrico Villanueva, Wesley Gonzales, Larry Fonacier and LA Tenorio. Hopefully, with the help of a superstar starting five and a solid supporting cast, the Eagles can reclaim the ever-elusive UAAP crown.

I just hope I get tickets for Sunday's Game 1.
