In the close matchup between the streaking Adamson Falcons and the FEU Tamaraws, faulty lighting in the Mall of Asia Arena caused the game to be ceased after multiple stoppages during the third set.
The game was stopped at the third frame which the Falcons led 21-19. The match was tied at one set apiece.
The lighting went off multiple times, causing delays in the game. The long pause was used by teams to warm up as the Tamaraws even got to play a little dodgeball during the break. By 10:30, the UAAP decided to cancel the match and reschedule it to close the first round games for both teams.
As of press time, the teams and the UAAP decided to reset the match to tomorrow, January 12, 9AM still at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Only the first game was canceled but the Ateneo and NU match will push through.
