FOX Sports 1-on-1: Thirdy Ravena ready to step out of Kiefer’s shadows

The entry of Tab Baldwin as the Ateneo senior basketball coach is a positive direction for a Blue Eagles squad that is now on a rebuilding mode.

Veteran stars Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal are done with their UAAP playing years after helping the Blue Eagles reach the Final Four last season.

Of course, there are more questions than answers facing Ateneo for UAAP Season 79 with the departure of several players, who are supposed to be the next stars of the team due to academic woes.

But Kiefer’s younger brother Thirdy will be back in the fold, now wiser after missing all of last season due to his own academic problems.

FOX Sports had a chance to talk with Thirdy Ravena and asked him about his expectations for the team in Season 79, the challenges the Blue Eagles will face, what he thinks about La Salle being the powerhouse UAAP squad, and a whole lot more. – By Mac Dionisio
