KBL: Rhenz Abando’s 30-point effort not enough to lift Anyang
MANILA, Philippines—Rhenz Abando had his best game yet in the Korean Basketball League on Sunday.
Abando erupted for 30 points but Anyang KGC still dropped an 82-81 heartbreaker at the hands of the Seoul SK Knights at Anyang Gymnasium.
The athletic forward also tallied six rebounds, two assists and two blocks.
Anyang, which remains on top of the standings with a 16-7 record, also drew 14 points and 14 rebounds from Omari Spellman.
Former College of St. Benilde swingman Justin Gutang helped the Changwon LG Sakers clip the Goyang Carrot Jumpers, 79-73, at Changwon Gymnasium.
Gutang collected 10 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals as Changwon improved to 13-9.
In a game featuring two Filipino imports, Ethan Alvano’s Wonju DB Promy dumped SJ Belangel’s Daegu KOGAS Pegasus, 111-80, at Daegu Gymnasium.
Both guards, however, only saw limited minutes. Alvano finished with five points and three assists for Wonju (13-9) while Belangel was scoreless in only seven minutes of play as Daegu fell to 10-12.
