Ilonggo Kiefer Ravena’s impressive offensive game went for naught as the Shiga Lakes bowed to Altiri Chiba, 116-80, in Japan B.League Division 2 at the Chiba Port Arena on Sunday night, February 4.

The former NLEX Road Warriors guard finished with a team-high of 18 points, including two three-pointers, to go with eight assists and three steals as the Lakes suffered their fourth straight loss to drop to 25-12.

“It was a tough two games, and I am very disappointed that we couldn’t win. In this long season, I think this defeat was very meaningful as we prepare for the next match,” Ravena said.

“I told my teammates that we should never forget those four defeats, and we should never allow something like this to happen in the future for any game. We would like to make this a positive game that will move us in a better direction,” he added.
