Kiefer Ravena steers Shiga back to B.League 1

A year after relegation to B2, Kiefer Ravena and Shiga are back where they belong.

Ravena guided the Lakes to a two-game sweep of the Koshigaya Alphas in the B.League Division II Finals last weekend at Shiga Daihatsu Arena.

Shiga defeated Koshigaya, 96-87, in Game 1 and escaped with an 89-87 victory in Game 2 to clinch the title.

Both the Lakes and the Alphas are promoted to B1 by virtue of making it to the finals.
