MANILA, Philippines–The Shiga Lakes’ championship run in the B2 division of the B.League also turned out to be a fitting farewell for Kiefer Ravena.

The Filipino basketball star, whose contract with Shiga expired at the end of the season, bid goodbye to the Lakes on his Instagram on Monday.

“Took a leap of faith and started a new life with Shiga,” wrote Ravena, who is now a free agent.

“I was accepted for who I was as a player and as a person. I’m forever grateful to the organization, front office, staff, teammates, coaches, boosters and fans.”

The 30-year-old Ravena played three seasons in the B.League and appeared in 164 games for Shiga.

Ravena had 10 points, three rebounds and eight assists in his final game for Shiga, helping the Lakes clinch the B2 championship last May 19.

The former NLEX Road Warriors guard in the PBA averaged 12.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.1 steals in his final season with Shiga, which earned a promotion back to the B1 division.

It remains uncertain as to where Ravena ends up playing next. His younger brother Thirdy, who was the first Asian import to be signed under the B-League’s Asian Player Quotas system after striking a deal with the San-En Neophoenix in 2020, has also parted ways with his longtime club last week.
