MANILA, Philippines – Kai Sotto continues to change the game in Philippine juniors basketball. 

Towering at 7-foot-1, the wunderkind has been showing off some mean dunks over other junior Ateneans from all over the country in the Jesuit Athletic Meet 2018 held in Cebu. 

In the Ateneo Blue Eaglets’ final game, Sotto caps off his team’s championship campaign by channelling his inner Kristaps Porzingis with a dunk off a euro-step on the fast break.

 


  

 

The Sotto-led UAAP juniors defending champion ultimately sealed the win and the title over Ateneo de Cebu, 67-52. 

The Blue Eaglets’ junior high school stars dominated the game as Sotto topscored with a double-double of 24 points and 16 rebounds to go with 2 blocks. Forthsky Padrigao followed with 12 points, 5 steals and 4 assists while Ian Espinosa chipped in 10 points, 7 rebounds and 3 steals. 

Sotto has reportedly been getting offers from European clubs.
