THIRDY RAVENA COMES HOME TO JOIN GILAS FOR FIBA WINDOWS
Thirdy Ravena surprised everyone as the Ateneo standout came home and committed to joining Gilas Pilipinas for the FIBA cup later this month.
The San-En NeoPhoenix guard answered the country’s call and assured his commitment to the program all the way to the 2023 World Cup.
The Ateneo standout could not contain his excitement as he posted an Instagram story with a caption “surprise” showing him at Moro Lorenzo Sports Center in Ateneo.
Together with Dwight Ramos, Juan Gomez de Liano, Jaydee Tungcab, and guided by Coach Chot Reyes, the national team will face three nations in a five-day window at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City, beginning Feb. 24.
Meanwhile, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) president Al Panlilio was also happy with the commitment of Thirdy.
“Happy to see Thirdy back to help out,” Panlilio said. “He has always told me he is committed to Gilas ever since.”
