Look, the FIBA commentator for the 3x3 World Cup livestream does an impeccable job when it comes to his research.

However, as the Philippines played Romania in the Pool B opener Saturday [Sunday, PHL time], he missed one glaring detail that may or may not cause an outrage among Pinoy hoops and volleyball fans.

Talking about Kiefer Ravena, FIBA's play-by-play guy on YouTube mentioned that the former two-time UAAP men's seniors basketball MVP was half of a celebrity couple back here in the Philippines.

That part was right.

What's not right though is what came next when he said that Kief is "married to a volleyball player, Alyssa Valdez."

And unless his research is so deep he actually knows something that all of us don't, Kiefer and Alyssa are most definitely not married yet.

Regardless, that was just a slight miss in an otherwise perfect research regarding our representatives for the 3x3 World Cup. It was an honest mistake, hopefully Alyfinity will take this is stride.

After all, it's not that he broke the power couple up right?

Anyway, below is the full video of the Philippines-Romania match. Skip to 5:01 if you just want the showbiz stuff.
