TAKE CHARGE. Thirdy Ravena will now be at the forefront of Ateneo's fledgling attack.
Games on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – UP vs Adamson
4:00 PM – UST vs Ateneo
A Ravena has gone away, but another Ravena has come back to the nest for Ateneo de Manila University in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The returning Thirdy Ravena and the new-look Blue Eagles are all cleared for takeoff, but will first have to go through host school University of Sto. Tomas on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The younger Ravena’s return and the Growling Tigers’ first game since their runner-up finish last season is scheduled at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
The former Juniors MVP will be tasked to steer an Ateneo crew mostly made up of rookies and sophomore. Promising youngsters Aaron Black, Matt Nieto, and Adrian Wong will be his backup.
The same task will be on the shoulders of Tigers team captain Louie Vigil who will spearhead an attack that will no longer have neither Ed Daquioag nor Kevin Ferrer. Instead, taking on bigger roles will be Embons Bonleon and Marvin Lee.
