Clutch Ravena named PBA Player of the Week for 2nd time
Kiefer Ravena’s torrid start to his PBA career continues with yet another impressive week.
The NLEX rookie came up clutch in the Road Warriors last two games against Meralco and Alaska to bolster his team’s chances of finishing in the top six.
Ravena scored nine of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, including the game-winning jumper with one second left, in an 87-85 win over the Bolts on Friday. He also collected seven rebounds and four assists in the game.
The former Ateneo star delivered anew down the stretch just two days later, this time, hitting the game-clinching free throws with 8.1 ticks left to hold off the Aces in a 96-89 victory.
Ravena displayed his versatility with 12 points, six rebounds, 10 assists and two steals.
His clutch and all-around performance the past couple of outings earned him his second PBA Player of the Week citation this season.
The 24-year-old guard beat the likes of LA Tenorio, Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar of Ginebra, which also went 2-0 the past week, for the award.
