MANILA, Philippines—Rhenz Abando impressed in his return to the Korean Basketball League as Anyang Jung Kwan Jang topped Goyang Sono on Sunday, 92-87, on Sunday at Anyang Stadium.

Abando played his first game since suffering a spinal injury after a bad fall in December against the same team.

The high-flying Abando was back like he never left, displaying his all-around brilliance with 17 points, four rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block in 28 minutes off the bench.


Robert Carter Jr. and Byung-Jun Bae also shone for Anyang with 19 and 14 points, respectively.
