In battle against sly SMB guards, Ravena gives himself a failing grade

NLEX rookie Kiefer Ravena felt that he disappointed in his much anticipated duel against the famed San Miguel backcourt on Friday.

“Maybe, I failed because we lost,” he said on the heels of the Road Warriors’ 98-109 defeat to the Beermen at Cuneta Astrodome. “No matter how good you played, in the end, we still lost.”

Ravena faced the toughest test in his professional career as he was guarded by Mythical Team members Chris Ross and Alex Cabagnot, as well as former Ateneo teammate Von Pessumal in stretches during the tiff.

“They tried to get inside of my head,” he shared. “They were talking smack so I was trying to do the same thing, but as much as possible, I wanted to focus and stick to the game because it seems like I’m losing my focus out of my game.”

The experience also served as an eye-opener for Ravena that there’s still so much that he needs to learn.
