Rhenz Abando leaves Letran, signs with Anyang KGC


Rhenz Abando ended up being a one-and-done in Colegio de San Juan de Letran.

The reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player has decided to forgo his final year in college as he is set to go pro in the Korean Basketball League, signing with Anyang KGC.

The team made the announcement on Thursday.

Abando had earlier wanted to play out his final year with the Knights but an outstanding showing during the 2022 KB Kookmin Bank Invitational made him change his plans.

During Gilas’ two-game series against Korea, the 24-year-old normed 15.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, and 1.0 assists.

Abando also played for Gilas during the third window of the World Cup Qualifiers and the Asia Cup.

In his sole year with Letran, Abando averaged 15.73 points, 6.36 rebounds, 1.73 assists, and 1.27 blocks per contest.

He joins an Anyang KGC team that is coming off a semis finish last season.

Abando becomes the sixth Filipino to sign with a KBL after SJ Belangel (Daegu KOGAS), RJ Abarrientos (Ulsan Hyundai), Justin Gutang (Changwon LG), Ethan Alvano (Wonju DB), and William Navarro (Seoul Samsung).
