WATCH: Ateneo’s Thirdy Ravena becomes a man possessed


Just as the Ateneo Blue Eagles have essentially owned Season 80, Thirdy Ravena is pretty much the entire tournament’s highlight reel. (Want proof? Watch this, this and this.)

On Saturday against University of Santo Tomas, he added not only one but two more jaw-dropping plays to his gorgeous video package.

In the second quarter, Ravena sank a one-handed, back-to-the-basket circus shot with UST’s Christian Garcia hacking him on his shooting arm.

The play that preceded that had Ravena poking the ball off Enrique Caunan with the ease of taking candy from a baby.

In the fourth, when Ateneo basically had the game wrapped, Ravena added another Tiger to his personal collection of posters when he tomahawk-dunked the lights out of UST’s Regie Basibas, who tried to get out of Ravena’s way but was caught in the snapshot anyway.

The beauty of that shot, courtesy of Chibueze Ikeh’s assist, was how Ravena attacked the rim — his body fully extended back and the ball cocked way back, part-LeBronesque, part-Jordanesque.

Ravena’s brother, Kiefer, was so stoked with the Thirdy throwdown that he couldn’t stop himself writing an NSFW tweet (with the letters P and I) that he deleted afterward.
