PH Twitter raves on Rhenz Abando’s performance


“Ang Probinsyano” does it again.

UST Rhenz Abando was a trending topic on Twitter, and for good reasons.

The 21-year-old newcomer for the Tigers put up a solid outing once again with 21 points on 5-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc.

But it was his performance on crunch time, including the overtime period, that left many fans amazed as he buried a spicy but important triple to give UST an 87-74 victory against NU Bulldogs.

On Twitter, most UAAP fans were quick to notice Abando’s masterful performance.

This guy even bought in to the Abando hype instead of the much-anticipated debut of UP’s Kobe Paras.

Even the famous sports analyst/reporter Mico Halili joined the Abando-hype.

For the athletic forward, he was quick to point out his mistakes in the first few breaks of the game, but he was able to make up for it when the team needed him the most.

“Nung overtime na, dun ko lang naramdaman na nasa loob ako ng sistema e. Yun yung mali ko – na naghahanap ako para sa sarili nung una,” Abando said.

:Tama talaga yung sinasabi nila coach na hahanapin at hahanapin ako ng laro ko.”
