MANILA, Philippines — The San Miguel Beermen’s woeful stint in the East Asia Super League (EASL) Champions Week came to a bitter end after being handed a 55-point loss by Rhenz Abando and Korean club Anyang KGC, 142-87, on Saturday March 4, at the Okinawa Arena in Japan.

Former NBA player Omari Spellman fired 53 points and hauled in 13 rebounds, while Abando, the Filipino import, scored 22 on 9-of-15 shooting to help give their team a 2-0 record.

San Miguel, the reigning PBA Philippine Cup champion, fell to 0-2, having lost by 28 points, 96-68, to Japanese team Ryukyu Golden Kings on March 2.

Anyang took control by the end of the opening frame when it took a 40-20 lead.
