Ravena impresses in Fiba Asia Champions Cup
Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas may have lost to Sareyyet Ramallah, 82-89, on Saturday, but that doesn’t stop Kiefer Ravena from earning believers in the Fiba Asia Champions Cup.
Even foes couldn’t help but gush over the 23-year-old’s stupendous play.
“He’s a very good player and has a bright future,” said Sareyyet Ramallah forward Jamal Abu-Shamala.
Ravena is leading Chooks in its first two games, averaging 21.0 points, which ranks third-best in the tournament so far. He is also collecting 3.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 2.0 steals per outing.
But the former Ateneo Blue Eagle knows he has to stay focused after his team blew a chance to the top spot in Group A.
“Tough game tonight. No excuses. Gotta stay positive and consistent. #Puso,” he wrote on Twitter.
Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas seeks to bounce back against Mono Vampire of Thailand on Sunday.
