Thirdy Ravena parts ways with San-En after four years, enters free agency


After four years, Thirdy Ravena and San-En have parted ways.

Ravena, the first-ever Asian Quota player in the B.League, will enter free agency for the first time in his pro career.

It has been quite a ride for Ravena with the Neophoenix.

“Thank you so much for welcoming this young kid from the Philippines with open arms. It’s been a great honor fighting for the club every single game,” read Ravena’s statement.

“The last four years have been a roller-coaster ride from injuries, wins, losses, battles off the court, and everything in between. I’ve certainly learned a lot about basketball and life in this whole process.

“Although we didn’t end exactly how we wanted to, I’m still happy that we were able to win the Conference title. It also wouldn’t be possible without the support of the boosters, sponsors, staff, coaches, and teammates! Sa lahat ng mga Pinoy na sumuporta at nanood sa mga laro lalo na yung mga dumayo pa galing malayo, maraming salamat sa inyo kabayan!” he continued.

Ravena signed with San-En back in 2020.

During his first three years with San-En, the team struggled, failing to make the playoffs.

But in what ended up as his final year, Ravena led the Neophoenix to a 46-14 record – third in the league.

Ravena averaged career-highs of 12.46 points, 4.98 rebounds, 2.85 assists, and 1.0 steals last season.

However, Hiroshima knocked out San-En in the quarterfinals via a two-game sweep.

“The thought of having to leave this place that I’ve called home these past few years gets me very emotional, but such is life. We keep moving forward!”

Numerous B1 teams have already expressed interest in signing Ravena.
