Just almost four years ago, Thirdy Ravena dreamt of being included in Gilas Pilipinas.

That tweet became a reality today, as he was chosen in the Final 12 for Team Pilipinas to compete in Qatar for FIBA Qualifying Cup.

“Years ago I was just a young kid watching my kuyas play in the FIBA 2015 World Championships on TV. Who knew that this would happen???,” said Ravena.

Although Ravena is part of Batang Gilas squad, this will be his first-ever stint with FIBA despite his amateur status.
