Kiefer Ravena parts ways with Shiga after three years


In a surprising turn of events, Kiefer Ravena will no longer be a part of the Shiga Lakes, marking the end of his three-year stint with the team.

This announcement comes just days after Ravena played a pivotal role in leading Shiga back to B.League Division 1.

The team has decided not to renew contracts for several players and coaches, including Ravena, head coach David Gomez, Hayato Wakugawa, Ryan Kriener, Rin Yamazaki, Teppei Kashiwagura, and Josei Maniwa.

This move signals a significant restart for Shiga, who recently topped B2 and secured their promotion.

During the 2022-23 season, the Lakes struggled in B1, finishing in the bottom two with a 14-46 record.

However, with Ravena at the helm, Shiga excelled in B2.

The Ateneo standout averaged 10.51 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.59 rebounds per game, showcasing his leadership and skill on the court.

Multiple sources have told Tiebreaker Times that Ravena is currently in negotiations with a new B1 team.

This development comes on the heels of his brother Thirdy not being renewed by San-En last week, indicating a period of transition for both Ravena brothers.

Despite the changes, Kiefer Ravena is set to continue his basketball journey as he joins the Strong Group for the 43rd William Jones Cup.
