Kiefer Ravena faces B.League’s ¥100M man Yuki Togashi


Kiefer Ravena will figure in a much-anticipated match-up on Saturday when the 2021-22 B.League resumes.

Shiga (West, 6-3) heads to the Funabashi Arena to face Chiba (East, 6-3) in a game that tips off at 2:05PM (Manila time).

Just who is the captain of the Jets? It’s none other than the league’s highest-paid player in Yuki Togashi.

Togashi, a 5-foot-6 point guard who was the 2018-19 B.League MVP, reportedly earns ¥100-million (P44,204,289.85) per year.

So far in the season, Togashi is averaging 15.8 points on 34.8-percent shooting from deep and 5.9 assists per game. In contrast, Ravena is norming 11.2 points on 32.4-percent shooting from three-point country and 4.8 assists.

And this game is one of the marquee games of the league this early. It will prove whether Ravena can lockdown the Japanese league’s best point guard.

This weekend will also be big for the Gomez de Liano household as Javi will make his Ibaraki debut while Juan returns from injury.
