For now, at least, Kiefer admits his younger brother Thirdy owns the 'better Ravena' title after a sensational UAAP Finals showing
e's going for a third one just so he can say he can beat me. I'm pretty sure that's his biggest motivation right now," said Kiefer, who never got to watch his brother play live this season due to his FIBA suspension.
But one thing that Kiefer didn't want to give up is his career-high 38 points, which Thirdy matched off a 13-of-18 clip from the field as Ateneo demolished the University of the Philippines in Game 2 to capture the Season 81 crown.
"I was praying na ilabas na siya noong naka-38 na siya. Pati ba naman iyon kukunin niya pa sa akin, 'di ba? Nakadalawang championship na nga, dalawang MVP pa. 'Yung 38 na lang saving grace ko eh," Kiefer said in jest.
(I was praying that he gets subbed when he reached 38 points. I was thinking, 'will he also surpass my career-high?' He already got two championships and two MVPs. The 38 point-game was my only saving grace. It's okay that he matched my record. I was happier when he was subbed out than when Ateneo won the championship.)
Even though the younger Ravena didn't get to match Kiefer's two MVP awards, he has two Finals MVP trophies to show.
