Kiefer braces for Ross, Cabagnot as NLEX challenges SMB

MANILA, Philippines – Barely a week after going toe-to-toe with one of the best guards in the league, NLEX rookie Kiefer Ravena will be tested once more as he tries to help the Road Warriors pull off an upset against San Miguel Beer.

Ravena went shot-for-shot with Magnolia's Paul Lee last Sunday, eventually outscoring the former Rookie of the Year, 31 to 21. Yet it was Lee's Hotshots that won the game, 105-94, handing NLEX its second consecutive loss of the PBA Philippine Cup.

On Friday, Ravena will be tested once more by the celebrated backcourt of San Miguel Beer. There, he will be facing not one, but two of the premier guards in the PBA in Chris Ross and Alex Cabagnot.

"Hindi naman masyadong mahirap 'yun," Ravena said in jest after his career-best performance against Magnolia.

"Chris, first team all-defensive. Alex, one of the best pick-and-roll guards in the league," he noted. "With San Miguel, we just have to prepare."
