To put it simply, Thirdy Ravena was in a class of his own.
Even if he was not eligible to win any regular season award, Ravena showed that it did not matter, as he put on a show in the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles’ sweep of the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons.
The 21-year-old led Ateneo’s 88-79 Game One win with 21 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two blocks, and two steals.
The athletic forward then put an emphatic performance in Ateneo’s 99-81 title-clinching win, finishing with 38 points, six rebounds, six assists, and three steals.
In the two games, he averaged a whopping 29.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 2.5 steals, and 1.0 blocks.
This is his second Finals Most Valuable Player plum.
Ravena was not eligible to win any regular season award, as he was slapped with a one-game suspension, which he served last October 20.
If not for that suspension, he would have made it to the All-UAAP team.
