THE extension of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon means the Chooks-to-Go National Basketball Training Center (NBTC) National Finals and Coaches Convention are again being pushed back.
Organizers have yet to set a new schedule for the tournament for high school teams originally scheduled March 21 to 27 at MOA Arena and re-scheduled April 20 to 26.
"We are one with the government in preventing the spread of the virus and help in flattening the curve," said NBTC program director Eric Altamirano in a statement on Wednesday.
"Chooks-to-Go, NBTC, and SM are still in the process of finalizing the rescheduled date for the National Finals and the Coaches Convention. We assure that the participants and the public's safety is our utmost priority. We shall inform everyone as soon as possible about the new date for our tournament."
UAAP champion National University-Nazareth School is looking to be the first back-to-back winner of the NBTC after ruling the National Finals last year.
NCAA champion San Beda and runner-up FEU-Diliman are also part of the 36-team tournament backed by Smart, Vivo, Darlington, Phoenix Fuels, Epson, Gatorade, Go for Gold and Molten.
