MANILA, Philippines—The Yokohama B-Corsairs will continue to have Filipino blood injected into its lineup in the upcoming 2024-25 Japan B.League season.

But no, it’s not in the form of Kai Sotto.

This time, it will be Kiefer Ravena, who recently left the Shiga Lakes in the middle of the offseason frenzy.

“I am very excited to be playing for the Yokohama B-Corsairs. This will be a new chapter in my career and I hope to bring my experience and competitive spirit to the team,” Ravena said.

“I can’t wait to meet the fans, play with them, and compete for a championship.”

Ravena,  who posted norms of 10.51 points, 4.0 assists and 2.59 rebounds a night last season, was with Shiga in its highs and lows.

He was there when the Lakes were relegated to B2 a few seasons back and when Shiga returned to the B1 division while also winning the B2 title in the process.
