Ravena, Paras honored to serve country, vouch for Teng’s desire to play for PH

After representing the Philippines in the 2017 Fiba 3×3 World Cup, Kiefer Ravena and Kobe Paras now embark on a new challenge as they are set to join the Gilas Pilipinas pool practices on Tuesday.

And for the two, nothing can compare to the privilege of being given the rare chance to don the national team colors.

“We’re very honored because we’re able to serve the country for 3×3 and we already have this chance for the Jones Cup,” said Ravena on Saturday in the Chooks-Pilipinas 3×3 homecoming press conference.

Paras added: “It feels good that coach Chot (Reyes) called us. It’s not everyday that we get a chance to be included in the Gilas pool, so we’re looking at this as our chance to help the country.”

Both Ravena and Paras are also hopeful to bring in another 3×3 teammate in the squad with Jeron Teng declaring his intentions to join the pool.

“We already represented the country with Jeron, so we know how committed he is,” Ravena said. “Once you’re representing the country, whether is in the youth team or the seniors stage, the commitment doesn’t change. and we know that’s the case with Jeron.”
