Thirdy Ravena’s journey next takes him to Japan.

Wednesday morning, the B.League, Japan’s premier basketball league, announced that Thirdy Ravena will be the first-ever player signed by the league’s Asian Player Quota.

Ravena — a 6-foot-2 swingman and the UAAP’s first-ever three-time Finals Most Valuable Player — will play for three-time league champions San-en NeoPhoenix.

The Asian Player Quota system is the league’s initiative to “enhance the capabilities of their local players by matching them with other Asian players in daily games”.

San-en is coached by Branislav Vićentić.

Back in the 2019-20 season of the B.League, San-en came dead last in the Central District division, finishing with a 5-36 record.

The last time San-en won a championship was back in 2015.
