Video Highlights: Ravena and Austin Took Charge, Delivers Chooks To Go Pilipinas First Win Against Kazakhstan

Ravena and Austin Combo Proved Lethal for the Kazakhs


Led by highly touted import Isaiah Austin and the phenom Kiefer Ravena, Chooks To Go tallies their first win against Kazakhstan in the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup in Chenzhou Sports Center, Chenzhou CIty, China with the score of 73-65.

The newly formed National squad of the Philippines answered a lot of questions today as they put down their first assignment. Kiefer Ravena led all locals in minutes played at 28 mins and scoring 22 points on 53% shooting. The phenom was on target tonight.

On the other hand, BC Astana of Kazakhstan was having a bad day shooting with a team field goal of 33% compared with 40% of the Philippines.  BC Astana actually started the game well and was leading the first half with the score of 43-35, until the Philippine defense suddenly tightened and limited Astana to 22 points in the entire second half.

The 7'1 import Isiah Austin lived up to his billing scoring 17 and grabbing 18 rebounds with 6 blocks in 31 minutes of play. Jet Manuel also contributed for the Philippines with 10 points that included 2 three-pointers.  The Teng brothers were off tonight scoring combined points of 8 on 2 of 9 shooting.

The Philippines will take on Palestine Sareyyet Ramallah next (16:45).  Palestine suffered a close defeat against Thailand in the opening game.
