Thirdy Ravena has now proven that he is not just a shadow of his phenomenal brother Kiefer as he was announced as UAAP Season 80 Finals Most Valuable Player yesterday.
He immediately went to his graduating Big Man and shared it with him as he deemed that he deserve that award as well.
Ravena commended his team mate of what he has done for the entire team the whole season and even though most of it did not reflect on the stat sheets, he made a huge contribution for them to win the championship.
“There are things na hindi nakikita ng mga tao talaga because it’s intangible. You don’t see it in the stats. But I saw Ikeh the whole year doing his job.”
Also, instead of hoarding all the glory, Thirdy stated that “The reward isn’t [just] for me, the whole team deserves this award.”
In addition, Ikeh did not expect that Ravena will do that and he was thankful enough that he was able to play for the Blue Eagles.
“I wasn’t expecting that but he has been a one of a kind player and him sharing it with me, it feels so great. I really appreciate that.”
The Nigerian Big Man would also like to extend his gratitude to the Ateneo community for their undying support to the team no matter what.
