MPBL action resumes today

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Inclement weather brought about by Super Typhoon Karding forced the cancellation of yesterday’s triple-bill of the OKbet-MPBL (Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League) Fourth Season Presented by Xtreme at the Caloocan Sports Complex.

To be reset for a later date were the games pitting Imus against Muntinlupa, Quezon City against Batangas City and Sarangani against Caloocan.

The MPBL resumes its single round-robin elimination round today with another triple-bill at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. Makati tackles Pampanga in the 5 p.m. opener, followed by the Bataan-Manila tussle at 7 p.m. San Juan tangles with General Santos City at 9 p.m.

Already assured of playoff berths, Pampanga and Bataan are favored over their opponents.

The San Juan-GenSan clash is expected to be a tossup as they have similar 12-6 records and are assured of playoff berths in the two-division, 22-team tournament.

The San Juan Knights have the momentum, however, owing to their five straight wins.
