Shiga renews Kiefer Ravena


Kiefer Ravena is set to play for Shiga in the next few years.

The Lakes have announced that they have signed the heady 6-foot combo guard to a new deal beginning this upcoming 2022-23 B.League season.

“I’m excited to be back and play for you guys once again!” said Ravena in a team statement.

“This will be a great season for us and I know the boosters will have fun supporting the team this year.”

In his first year with Shiga, Ravena averaged 13.16 points, 5.84 assists, 2.41 rebounds, and 1.48 steals in 56 games played.

The team formerly known as the Lakestars though finished the season with a 14-43 record.

Shiga has since reloaded, signing the likes of Jacob Wiley, Eric Mccree, and Kai Toews to beef up its roster.

During the B.League’s offseason, Ravena went back home in good faith as he tried to fulfill his promise to NLEX to play this season.

However, the Road Warriors wanted Ravena to play one full season — a counter to Ravena’s proposal of playing just one conference.

Due to not getting to find a middle ground, the Philippine Basketball Association allowed Ravena to sign with the B.League team with no repercussions.

With Ravena entering a second year overseas, he will serve a four-year soft ban in the PBA. This is the same predicament Ray Parks has after re-signing with Nagoya.

Shiga will face Gunma at Ota City Sports Park Municipal Gymnasium to open its campaign on October 1.
