SUBIC — San Juan-Go for Gold and Davao Occidental-Cocolife will collide in the Chooks-to-Go MPBL National Finals for the second straight season.
League commissioner Kenneth Duremdes confirmed that four members from the Basilan-Jumbo Plastic delegation tested positive for COVID-19 in their re-swab, Monday.
“Update is four ang positive,” said Duremdes.
With the development, the Tigers won the Chooks-to-Go MPBL Lakan South Division title by default. They also punched their ticket to the National Finals for the second straight season.
The two squads were knotted at 1-1 when the pandemic forced MPBL to stop play a year ago.
Basilan drew first blood against the Tigers back on March 9 last year, 74-72 at the RDR Gymnasium in Tagum City, before Davao tied the series two days after, 81-76, at the Lamitan Capitol Gym.
The quest for the Lakan championship trophy will begin tomorrow, March 17, 4:00 pm, still at the Subic Bay Gymnasium here.
Games will be almost every day until the series ends, with just a one-day breather after Game Two.
