Thirdy Ravena, Robert Bolick headline All-Collegiate Team

Robert Bolick of NCAA three-peat titlists San Beda Red Lions and Thirdy Ravena of UAAP back-to-back champions Ateneo Blue Eagles lead the All-Collegiate Basketball Team in the 2019 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Awards presented by SportsVision scheduled for Monday at Amelie Hotel Manila in Malate.

Bolick ended his collegiate career with a bang, averaging 16.8 points in 49.1 percent shooting, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in the Red Lions’ 20-1 romp through the 94th Season of the NCAA. That included a 50-point outburst against Arellano in the elimination round – one of the highest individual marks in the history of the Grand Old League.

For his part, Ravena flew the highest he ever has with norms of 14.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 blocks as the Blue Eagles’ dominated UAAP Season 81 with an overall 15-2 record. He saved his best for last when he imposed his will on UP en route to being hailed as Finals MVP.

Completing this year’s All-Collegiate Team selected by the Collegiate Press Corps, made up of scribes from print and online outfits covering the NCAA and UAAP, are NCAA 94 MVP Prince Eze of Perpetual and the UP pair of Bright Akhuetie and Paul Desiderio.

Eze carried the Altas on his back all season long as they barged back into the playoffs. Akhuetie’s own MVP campaign, as well as Desiderio’s heroics, were also more than enough to bring the Fighting Maroons to their first Final Four appearance since 1997 and first Finals one in 32 years.
