In the most recent games, Kiefer Ravena and his teammates are all doing their best to win. According to Ateneo’s head coach Bo Perasol, “He’s (Ravena) always going to be the one to lead the team. It doesn’t matter whether he’s going to score or not. It’s always just the epitome of showing that can-do attitude regardless of the situation and obviously he was able to deliver for us in the end again.” He added, “His skills are way above the rest and that’s the reason why we are successful.”

Kiefer Ravena truly knows what to do in and out of the court. After the photo of a girl who was wearing a jacket of La Salle and flashing a dirty finger while posing with him, accepted her apology and even asked his fans to stop bashing her.

Ateneo is now in a far better position to start the season compared to Season 76 when they struggled and began with a 0-3 slate. But despite of it, Perasol noted that they need to prepare well and rest. And they are going to find a way to replicate this round.
