    KIEFER Ravena put on the finishing touches to Shiga's 91-82 escape act against Rizing Zephyr Fukuoka, helping the Lakestars advance to the next round of the 97th Emperor's Cup on Sunday at Arena Tachikawa Tachihi.

    Ravena finished with 12 points, nine assists, two rebounds, and a steal for the Lakestars. He capped that performance with two huge assists in the final two minutes that led to Sean O'Mara and Novar Gadson icing the game for Shiga.
