The pieces for Mighty Sports’ Dubai Invitational Basketball Tournament campaign are starting to take shape
Former Ateneo Blue Eagle and current NBA D-Leaguer Kiefer Ravena will once again suit-up for Mighty Sports in its campaign in the 2017 Dubai Invitational Basketball Tournament.
The 23-year-old is currently signed with the Texas Legends but was allowed to join Mighty Sports according to the team’s head coach Charles Tiu.
Ravena has been a mainstay with Mighty Sports, suiting up for them in the PCBL and during the 2016 Merlion Cup. During the finale of the Merlion Cup, Ravena went on a classic duel with Jimmer Fredette. However, Mighty fell to Fredette’s Shanghai Sharks, 77-78, to bring home silver in the tournament.
Aside from Ravena and former Ginebra import Justin Brownlee, the team also locked up the services of 7-foot-3 Tanzanian Hasheem Thabeet.
Thabeet, 29, was the second overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He is currently playing in the NBA D-League.
The tournament will run from February 18 to 25 at the Al Ahli Club in Dubai, UAE.
