PASIG--After six years, the Ravena Brothers are in the same team again.
Kiefer and Thirdy Ravena headline the Gilas Pilipinas Men lineup that will take on Indonesia at the start of their campaign in the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers on Sunday night at the Britama Arena in Jakarta.
Kiefer Ravena was named the captain of the squad earlier in the week, making him a shoo-in for the Final 12.
On the other hand, Thirdy Ravena leads the way for the players who made the cut despite not playing a single PBA game so far.
Joining the final lineup among the PBA veterans are CJ Perez, Abu Tratter, Justin Chua, RR Pogoy, Troy Rosario, and Poy Erram, the main guy in a proposed three-team trade that would bring him to TNT led by active consultant Mark Dickel, the head coach for Gilas Men against Indonesia.
Completing the lineup are incoming PBA rookies Isaac Go and Matt Nieto, collegiate star Juan Gomez De Liaño, and incoming UAAP rookie Dwight Ramos.
