Bad weather, suspension of classes force postponement of NCAA games
BAD WEATHER caused by monsoon rains and the subsequent cancellation of classes in the metro forced the National Collegiate Athletic Association to postpone scheduled Season 95 games at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City on Tuesday.
In a statement, NCAA Management Committee chairman Peter Cayco of season host Arellano University said that with the inclement weather the games had to be postponed, to ensure safety of both the teams and spectators, and rescheduled to a later date.
Affected games were those of the San Sebastian Stags (7-3) against the Perpetual Help Altas (3-7) at 12 noon, Mapua Cardinals (4-6) versus the College of Saint Benilde Blazers (6-4) at 2 p.m., and the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers (4-7) against Arellano (2-9) at 4 p.m.
San Sebastian was looking to extend its winning streak to six games and fortify its push for a top-two finish in the elimination round of the ongoing season of the country’s oldest collegiate league.
Perpetual Help, for its part, has lost back-to-back games and was angling to wiggle out of the skid.
Mapua and JRU, meanwhile, were out to build on their victories last time around and pad their respective thrusts towards the top half of the standings against opponents which are having it rough of late.
