MANILA, Philippines – The second game of the seniors’ basketball finals between Ateneo and Far will be postponed due to the stormy weather, the UAAP board announced Tuesday.
The hazards brought about by the heavy rains and strong winds of “Pedring” prompted the UAAP board to reschedule the match at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, after its president Ricky Palou announced earlier in the day that the games would still push through.
Game two of the best-of-three finals between the Blue Eagles and the Tamaraws will instead be played on Saturday, October 1, at the same venue.
But if the Tamaraws, trailing by a game against the defending champions, forge a rubbermatch, the schedule for game three has not been set.
Tickets for Tuesday’s game will still be honored on Saturday.
The women’s and juniors’ finals matches, however, went on according to schedule, with the participating teams at the venue as of posting time.
