KIEFER Ravena has one piece of advice to close pal Kevin Ferrer – give up any thoughts that he can be a good volleyball player.

“He just got to give up the dream,” said Ravena after watching and being entertained by Ferrer, who struggled playing the game during the Fastbr3ak charity volleyball match Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan.

“There are dreams that we should just give up (on), and for Kevin, this is one of them.”

Ferrer, the lanky star forward out of University of Santo Tomas, played for Team Kiefer in the one-day event organized for the benefit of victims of Typhoon Nona.

The Gilas cadets star may be a damn good basketball player, but he's not cut out for basketball, Ravena laughed.

“Di ko na alam ginagawa ko. Enjoy lang, basta talon lang ako nang talon. Basta kung ano lang ang pinagawa nila, ginawa ko lang,” a smiling Ferrer said.

In one instance, Ferrer caught the ball with both hands, then tried a windmill dunk to the delight of the crowd. Veteran coach Roger Gorayeb, who acted as match referee, credited the point to the fifth-year UST forward.

Ravena admitted he too, was impressed with what Ferrer did.

“May isa siyang magandang dunk kanina, iniskor ko ng 10 yun,” said a laughing Ravena, son of former national volleyball team member Mozzy Ravena.

The Ateneo star then added, “The Escoto brothers (Russel and Richard) played well, (while) Kevin and Gelo (Alolino), you know, they should just give up.”
