Tiebreaker Times Help coming for San-En as Thirdy Ravena leaves for Japan on Thurs Basketball News  Thirdy Ravena San-en NeoPhoenix 2020-21 B.League Season

Help is coming for the floundering San-En NeoPhoenix. 

Thirdy Ravena is set to fly to Japan on Thursday, October 15.

The Ravena family confirmed this to Tiebreaker Times.

The arrival of the 6-foot-2 Asian import will be a big boost to San-En, who have dropped to 0-4 in the B.League.

On opening weekend, NeoPhoenix suffered back-to-back whippings at the hands of Chiba, 65-83 and 54-103.

Then just last weekend, San-En was able to keep close with Mikawa in the first game, absorbing a 63-55 defeat. But it was then routed the next day, 57-85.

The 23-year-old Ateneo product was supposed to leave for Japan last July but the Japanese embassy was closed. Ravena was only allowed to apply for a visa last October 2.

Ravena will make it in time for San-En’s back-to-back against Toyama.
