The MPBL South Division decider game was put on hold after a player found positive for COVID-19.
The basketball-league owned by Sen. Manny Pacquiao was all set as teams began to converge at the Subic Gymnasium under a sports bubble setup. Then some bump on the plan came up as a member of the Basilan Steel found that he got the novel coronavirus.
According to SPIN, that confirmation came from MPBL Commissioner Kenneth Duremdes where he also told that the North Division Finals do-or-die battle will be played as scheduled which is more of a good news for us sports fans.
At the time of this writing, the new plan of the league’s playoff round is not yet clear but one thing seems to be certain that the lineup of games will be changed due to this sudden turn of events. Likewise, Duremdes also mentioned that the Steels will undergo a re-swab after seven days of quarantine.
That’s the number of days for the winner between the San Juan Knights and Makati Super Crunch have to wait to ignite the MPBL Lakan Cup Best-of-Five championship round.
