Kiefer Ravena played his best game in the 2017 FIBA 3x3 World Cup in Nantes, France.

Not enough.

The Chooks-Pilipinas 3x3 crew fell to 1-2 in Pool B Tuesday [Wednesday, PHL time] after taking a 14-21 loss to no. 2 Slovenia.

Struggling with the shooting of the Slovenians, Ravena sparked a mini-run for the Filipinos to keep it close, 11-15, with three minutes to go.

However, Slovenia's fluid offense would allow them cruise to victory, keeping an unbeaten slate in Pool B.

The Philippines will wrap up group play against El Salvador later in the day.
