The canceled games are San Sebastian against Arellano University, San Beda against University of Perpetual Help, and Colegio de San Juan de Letran against College of St. Benilde.

“Ompong” will not directly make landfall in Metro Manila but its wide vicinity could still cause light to moderate rains since it will strengthen the still existing southwest monsoon.
