Guiao rues lack of support for Ravena in loss to Magnolia

NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao saw his prized rookie Kiefer Ravena shine in adversity in a 105-94 loss to Magnolia, but behind that glory was the fact that the Road Warriors had few to show after their prized rookie.

Ravena finished with a career-high 31 points, with four rebounds and five assists, but was basically a one-man crew that operated NLEX’s system.


Guiao said that even though Ravena was spectacular offensively, that wasn’t the way NLEX basketball was supposed to be played.

“Kiefer played a great game today offensively but that’s not our style of play,” said Guiao Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “We don’t want one player to take over the game offensively and try to bring us or carry us on his shoulders for us to win.”

NLEX had three players score in double figures against Magnolia—Ravena getting 31, JR Quiñahan with 22, and Kevin Alas with 13—and all three shot 40 of the team’s total 88 field goal attempts.
