MANILA, Philippines – Anyang KGC stayed undefeated in the new season of the Korean Basketball League (KBL) by handing the visiting Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus their first loss, 93-84, on Thursday, October 20.
In the win to rise to a 3-0 record, Anyang – still missing Filipino import Rhenz Abando due to injury – banked on a balanced effort led by Oh Se-keun’s 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting and 3-of-6 from three, while former NBA player Omari Spellman stuffed the stat sheet with a 15-point, 9-board, 7-assist line.
Woo-seok Lee paced the loss with a game-high 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting plus 7 rebounds as Hyundai slid down to a 1-1 slate.
Meanwhile Gilas Pilipinas gunner RJ Abarrientos enjoyed a team-high 31-minute run and produced a 12-point, 9-assist, 2-steal line.
Anyang can extend its streak to four straight wins by downing the Seoul Samsung Thunders (1-1) on Saturday, October 22, 3 pm (Manila time).
At the exact same time slot, the Abarrientos-led Phoebus will shoot for a bounce-back showing against the Jeonju KCC Aegis (1-1). – Rappler.com
