MANILA, Philippines — Even with Ateneo Blue Eagles-inspired jerseys, Thirdy Ravena and San-En NeoPhoenix could not catch a break against the Kawasaki Brave Thunders, losing back-to-back games this weekend.
Ravena's home return after a long layoff following a hand injury was celebrated with special edition jerseys that donned blue colors, a nod to Ravena's stint with the Blue Eagles and Gilas Pilipinas.
But it couldn't bring luck to the slumping squad as they absorbed their sixth straight loss on Sunday, 77-87.
Their first game against the Brave Thunders on Saturday was a more lopsided affair, 103-74.
Ravena was limited to just four points on Saturday then it was followed by a six-point outing Sunday. He also had five boards and three dimes for Neo-Phoenix.
Nick Fazekas led the Brave Thunders with 32 points, 17 rebounds and six assists.
NeoPhoenix now has an 11-39 slate and is ranked 19th in the B. League standings.
They hope to stop their losing slump when they face the Shiga Lakestars next weekend.
