MANILA, Philippines – For the first time on television, Ateneo’s star guard Kiefer Ravena admitted he is currently dating someone.

In an interview on the ABS-CBN morning talk show “Kris TV” aired on Friday, Ravena said he has been dating a schoolmate from the Ateneo de Manila University whom he only described as “a dancer.”

“Yes. [She’s from] Ateneo also,” he told “Kris TV” host Kris Aquino.

Asked if she is also an athlete, the basketball player replied: “No, she dances.”

While he refused to give further details about the identity of his special someone, Aquino already announced her name. “’Yung dine-date niya ngayon, itago natin sa pangalan na Katrina.”

Photos of the couple were then shown on “Kris TV.”

Minutes before admitting that he is dating someone, Ravena said his special someone should be "understanding" of his passion and commitment to basketball.

He noted that some couples tend to split up because of lack of time for each other.

“If you love the sport so much, nangyayari din ‘yung ganun [na ‘di na napapansin ‘yung babae minsan]. So unang-una, siyempre, maghahanap ka ng girl na understanding. ‘Yun ang pinakaimportante,” said Ravena, whose last serious relationship ended last year because of “complications.”

Meanwhile, Ravena said he is busy training this summer. “May games na ngayon, nagsta-start na ‘yung leagues namin,” he said.
