Kiefer Ravena, The Phenom, is ready for the pros.
Before the PBA Draft this Sunday, let's revisit some of the college highlights of this year's top projected picks to offer a kind of glimpse of what they could bring in the pros.
SCHOOL: Ateneo de Manila University
MONICKER / NICKNAME: The Phenom
Kiefer Ravena is the projected second pick in the upcoming selection, next only to the franchise-changing force that is Christian Standhardinger, and that says a lot.
From the moment Kiefer announced his application to the Draft, teams, fans, and league executives definitely took notice and imagined the possibilities of having The Phenom on their team.
By topping three of the five anthropometric tests in the Draft Combine, Kiefer Ravena proved he hasn't lost his touch, even after holding out a few years post-graduation.
After gethering important experience in the NBA D-League, Alab Pilipinas in the ASEAN Basketball League, and for Gilas Pilipinas, Kiefer has shown great improvement from his already stellar collegiate profile with Ateneo.
Still, the highlights he provided during his stay in Katipunan, which resulted in two MVP awards and two championships for Ateneo are still sights to behold.
With Kiefer, the lucky team who'll draft him is set to receive a heady and battle-hardened floor general who can also score at will.
His shooting, finishing at the rim, and newfound playmaking is sure to make him a three-way threat on offense, and a solid contributor on defense.
