Kiefer faces Ando as Thirdy meets Aquino in B.League Wednesday


Three days after facing Chiba’s Yuki Togashi, Kiefer Ravena will have another tough day in the office on Wednesday.

Shiga’s Asian Quota player will match up against another elite Japanese guard in Seiya Ando of Shimane on Wednesday at the Ukaruchan Arena.

Tip-off is set at 6:15 PM.

The Lakestars (West, 6-5) are in the midst of a three-game skid. They previously lost to the Kawasaki Brave Warriors and the Jets.

“Shimane is another team that is aiming for the playoffs and is very strong,” Ravena said about the Susanoo Magic (West, 8-3). “We have to prepare our bodies and minds for that tough game.

“It won’t be an easy game, but if we play within our system, we will have a chance to win.”

Kiefer’s younger brother Thirdy, on the other hand, welcomes to the Toyashi City General Gymnasium a fellow second-generation cager in Matthew Aquino at 6:05 PM.
