MANILA, Philippines – The 2014 Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup will tip off on April 23 at the Filoil Flying V Arena of San Juan.

Thus far a total of 21 teams – with a probability of a 22nd team joining – are participating in the summer’s biggest and most exciting college basketball tournament.

With the odd number of squads in the pre-season tourney, the schools have now been bracketed in three groups.

Group A

Group B

Group C

La Salle Green Archers

San Beda Red Lions

San Sebastian Golden Stags

UST Growling Tigers

Letran Knights

NU Bulldogs

Perpetual Help Altas

FEU Tamaraws

EAC Generals

UE Red Warriors

Lyceum Pirates

St. Benilde Blazers

JRU Heavy Bombers

Adamson Soaring Falcons

UP Fighting Maroons

Mapua Cardinals

RP Youth U17

CEU Scorpions (NAASCU)

UV Lancers (Cebu)

USC Warriors (Cebu)

Holy Trinity Wildcats (General Santos)

The probable 22nd team is SWU Cobras.

Not participating in this year’s summer tournament are the Ateneo Blue Eagles and the Arellano University Chiefs.

Format

The tournament is a single-round robin elimination round with teams only playing those in their group.

The top two teams per group and the two best third-placers (based on quotient) will advance to the quarterfinals.

In the quarterfinals, teams will be ranked from first to eighth places applying the win-loss record and the quotient system.

Teams will play a knock out game based on the following match-ups:

1 vs. 8

2 vs. 7

3 vs. 6

4 vs. 5

In the semis, a knockout game will be played based on the following match-ups:

Winner of 1-8 vs. Winner of 4-5

Winner of 2-7 vs. Winner of 3-6

The winner will advance to the knockout round.

Another difference for this year is teams will play fewer matches and the tournament will end a week earlier.
