FEU out to pull plug on Ateneo’s season, Ravena’s career

CHERISH EVERY MOMENT. All eyes will be on Kiefer Ravena as he leads Ateneo against twice-to-beat FEU and tries to extend his final collegiate campaign.
Game on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
3:30 PM – FEU vs Ateneo
Fresh off a won race for the MVP plum, Kiefer Ravena is hoping that success doesn’t end there just yet as the Final Four of the UAAP 78 Men’s Basketball Tournament begins.
The now back-to-back MVP leads Ateneo de Manila University anew on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum as they try to fan the flames of their drive for the championship by forcing a winner-take-all matchup against Far Eastern University.
Ravena’s possible last collegiate contest begins at 3:30 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN Sports+Action as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com.
What could be Ravena’s – and running mate Von Pessumal – last time donning the Ateneo blue and white will surely be emotional. Such motivation just may be what the Katipunan kids need to overcome a twice-to-beat disadvantage and keep their campaign going.
Already coming off an emotional win of its own, however, is FEU which came back from 15 points down to defeat and ultimately eliminate De La Salle University. The morale of Morayta is on cloud nine as of the moment, but the more important piece of information is that Mac Belo, Mike Tolomia, and RR Pogoy will enter the playoffs well-rested and very much ready for their final push for the championship.
The Tamaraws won both meetings between the two in the elimination round.
