    KIEFER Ravena went from hero to zero as Shiga Lakestars suffered a shock 84-83 defeat to the Gunma Crane Thunders in the Japan B.League on Wednesday at Ota City Sports Park Civic Gymnasium.

    The Filipino guard keyed the visitors' 16-6 run to fight back from a 74-67 deficit in the final 4:42, draining the crucial freebies that pushed Shiga up, 83-80.

    Trey Jones scored two for Gunma, but Ravena tried to respond with a dagger three. He, however, muffed his long bomb and was whistled for a foul on the rebound play, leading to Jones cooly sinking the go-ahead freebies in the last three seconds.

    Ravena had one last chance to salvage the game, but his jumper at the buzzer can't find the bottom of the net.

    It was a tough finish for the import which poured seven of his 17 points in the last four minutes, as well as seven assists, four rebounds, and three assists as the Lakestars suffered their 13th straight defeat to sink to 10-30.
