Hectic schedule ahead as PBA resumes Nov. 3
MANILA, Philippines — An already condensed conference just got a little more hectic.
The PBA, after going on a momentary lull, will now stage quadruple headers on five of its remaining nine-game days in the Philippine Cup eliminations.
Blackwater, which had a player yield a false positive on his antigen test, will begin the new schedule against defending champion San Miguel on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 10 a.m. at Angeles University Foundation.
Phoenix will then take on TerraFirma for the 1 pm match with NorthPort vs. TNT serving as the third game at 4 pm and the contest between Barangay Ginebra and Alaska serving as the closer at 6:45 pm.
The league momentarily stopped its games on Friday after the government recommended new health protocols and was notified on Saturday that it can resume the conference on Tuesday.
One of the Elite’s players had a false positive on his COVID-19 test and this prompted the league to postpone the team’s games for the time being.
The Nov. 5 and Nov. 9 game days will feature triple headers while the Nov. 7 and Nov. 10 schedules are the ones with dual matches.
