Thirdy Ravena capped his spectacular five-year run with Ateneo bagging one more plum.
The 6-foot-2 forward was crowned as the UAAP Season 82 Men’s Basketball Finals Most Valuable Player, Wednesday at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.
The 22-year-old averaged 24.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in Ateneo’s masterful sweep of University of Santo Tomas.
This is Ravena’s third Finals MVP award, becoming the first-ever student-cager to achieve the feat in the Final Four era.
“Para sa akin, ganun talaga, bonus lang yun eh. Kaya rin siya gumagana because it’s every single one of us ginagawa ginanagawa yung roles namin to the best of our abilities. Whether big or small. Yun ang strength namin,” said Ravena.
“We all want to do it for one another. Honestly, mas masarap yung feeling na nag champion kami ng tatlong beses kesa sa mag MVP ng tatlong beses.”
Ravena had four Finals appearances under his belt.
More importantly, he ended his run with three championships as well.
