MANILA, Philippines — Two of the best players in college basketball today, Ateneo’s Kiefer Ravena and Perpetual Help’s Earl Scottie Thompson head the Mythical Team chosen by the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps in the 2014 Collegiate Basketball Awards on Dec. 4 at the Saisaki-Kamayan EDSA.

Ravena and Thompson were unanimous choices by scribes after both standouts won the Most Valuable Player plum in their mother leagues.

The 6-foot Ravena led the Blue Eagles back to the Final Four in the UAAP Season 77 while the do-it-all Thompson powered the Altas to their third consecutive semifinals appearance in the NCAA Season 90.

Completing the Mythical Team are Far Eastern University forward Mac Belo, San Beda center Ola Adeogun and De La Salle University forward Jeron Teng.

Belo led the Tamaraws to their first Finals stint since 2005 after his memorable buzzer-beating 3-pointer beat the Green Archers in the Final Four.

Adeogun anchored the Red Lions’ run to their fifth NCAA crown in a row following a sweep of the Arellano Chiefs in the championship round.

Teng had his best season yet — finishing second to Ravena in the MVP race while helping La Salle to another semis appearance.
