Ateneo and San Beda took care of its respective opponents and advanced to the semifinals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) on Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Blue Eagles, the reigning UAAP champions, brushed off NCAA king Letran, 79-61, to keep intact its unblemished record at 3-0 in the Challenge stage of the competition.

Dwight Ramos and Troy Mallillin had 16 points apiece and combined for 13 rebounds to lead the Blue Eagles, while SJ Belangel added 10 points.

Ateneo came out of the locker room held to a halftime deadlock at 35 before outscoring the befuddled Knights in the third quarter, 30-4, to erect a massive 65-39 spread.
