B.League: Kiefer rallies Shiga from 22 down, stuns Thirdy’s San-En

Kiefer Ravena showed his veteran wares in his B.League debut.

Kiefer was the steady presence Shiga needed in storming back from 22 down to stun his brother Thirdy and San-En and open their 2021-22 B.League campaign on a high note, 93-83, Saturday evening at the Ukaruchan Arena.

Kiefer, who came off the bench, tallied 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting from the field with eight assists and three steals with no turnovers.

And Kiefer’s calm was particularly important when the Lakestars faced a 37-59 deficit with 7:41 left in the third canto.

Slowly, the Lakestars chopped through the lead, eventually cutting the lead down to 11 entering the final frame.

Behind Kiefer’s floor generalship, Shiga went on a 21-0 spurt to gain an 82-74 lead with 3:49 left much to the delight of the fans inside the venue.

Kiefer made sure to keep his big men happy.

British import Ovie Soko 18 points — 11 in the final frame — and 11 rebounds; Sean O’Mara added 17 points and nine rebounds; while Novar Gadson tallied 16 points, four rebounds, and three assists.
