MANILA, Philippines — Phenomenal.
Kiefer Ravena displayed his full repertoire to lead Ateneo de Manila University in torching De La Salle University, 78-70, in the 2013 FilOil Flying V Premier Cup on Saturday, June 1, at The Arena.
The junior guard fired 31 points as the Blue Eagles defeated the Green Archers for the first time since the preseason tournament’s inception in 2007.
Ravena sparked an Ateneo breakaway midway through the game, when after briefly giving the lead to La Salle, 25-24, the Eagles went on a backbreaking 30-10 blast to erect a 55-35 advantage.
The retooled Archers attempted comeback after comeback but the five-peat UAAP champions had answers for every La Salle run to arrange a quarterfinals date with Adamson University.
Meanwhile, the Green Archers will face NCAA semifinalist Arellano University in their last eight pairing. – Rappler.com
