TAIPEI — As he checked in midway through the first quarter of the Gilas-Canada game, Kiefer Ravena made history in becoming the first second-generation Jones Cup player from the Philippines.

Kiefer made his Jones Cup debut 26 long years after his dad Bong had his stint in this premier Asian invitational tournament with the Francis Rodriguez-mentored Philippine team in 1991.

“I was aware of that (his father’s Jones Cup experience). That was two years before I was born,” said Kiefer, one of the three second-generation players in the Gilas team, the two others being Kobe Paras and Bobby Ray Parks, Jr.

The elder Ravena was then with Jun Limpot, Bong Solomon, Bonel Balingit, EJ Feihl, Mark Tallo, Eric Reyes, Tony dela Cerna, Nonoy Chuatico, Jolly Escobar, Chris Bade and Boyet Fernandez, among others, in a pool gearing up for the 1991 SEA Games in Manila.

Ravena went on to make the Philippine SEA Games team and played a key role in the gold-medal game versus Thailand at the Big Dome – among the highlights in the final day of what was then hailed as 91 in 91 Miracle in Manila.

With a haul of 91 gold medals, the Philippines narrowly lost the overall championship to Indonesia.
