    THE MPBL Datu Cup match between Navotas and Muntinlupa that was called off last July 28 due to a broken rim will finally be resumed on Saturday at the Angeles University Foundation gym.

    Commissioner Kenneth Duremdes issued a memo recently about the resumption of the game, Fox Sports Philippines reported on Thursday.

    The game will be resumed at 5:30 p.m. right before the regular doubleheader pitting the Basilan Steel against the Bacoor Strikers, and Pampanga Lanterns against the Zamboanga Family's Brand Sardines.

    League forced to call the game off with 1:35 left in overtime after a three-point shot by Kyle Neypes broke the rim. Muntinlupa was up, 98-93, when the game was called off since there were no replacement rims in the gym.


    Duremdes said the game will be resumed even if it only has a bearing for at least one team. The Clutch are in seventh place in the North division with an 11-12 card, but can still move up the rankings heading to the playoffs.
