RHENZ Abando broke out of his slump and once again made impact in Anyang KGC's 83-80 escape of Seoul SK Knights on Sunday in the 2022-23 KBL season at Anyang Gymnasium.
The former NCAA MVP unloaded 15 points, three rebounds, and two assists before fouling out with 9:41 still to play in the fourth quarter.
That didn't matter as Omari Spellman put Anyang on his back with 29 points, 17 boards, four assists, and two steals to bounce back and rise to 21-9.
It was Abando's best performance after five straight games of being held below five points. That was after he scored a career-best 30 points on Dec. 18, curiously also against the same Seoul SK squad.
Byun Jun-hyung added 14 points and eight assists, Oh Se-keun had 13 points, six rebounds, and two assists, and Park Ji-hoon had 10 points and three boards in the win.
RJ Abarrientos, meanwhile, buried three treys in Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus' 89-83 win over Suwon KT SonicBoom at Dongchun Gymnasium.
The Filipino gunner shot 3-of-9 from distance and finished with 14 points, five assists, four rebounds, a steal, and a block to halt a two-game skid.
Gaige Prim led Ulsan with 21 points and 14 boards, while Lee Woo-seok chipped in 18 points and four rebounds in the win to push the Phoebus to a 17-13 slate.
Ha Yoon-gi led Suwon with 26 points, nine rebounds, and two assists as Suwon saw the end of its six-game win streak to drop to 13-16.
The SonicBoom are still awaiting the clearance for Dave Ildefonso, who was formally introduced as a part of the team on Sunday.
