Kai Sotto trends after dominant triple-double performance
Kai Sotto had Pinoy Twitter in a frenzy with his dominant outing.

Ateneo Blue Eaglets center Kai Sotto set Twitter ablaze Friday afternoon after a dominant 22-point, 16-rebound, and 11-block outing against the Nazareth School of National University Bullpups in Game 1 of the UAAP season 80 juniors basketball Finals.

Ateneo actually started the game slowly, in part because of their two-week layoff for getting the outright Finals berth.

That is, until the 7'2" teen subbed in midway through the first quarter, and just did his thing.

Sotto already had five blocks after the first half, none more emphatic that two quick rejections on two different opponents.

Come the second half, Sotto completed his triple-double with a block on an attacking Bullpup. Kai seals his feat with some little trash talk, as well.

Already a Gilas Pilipinas prospect and a part of the #23for23 pool, Sotto just added more reasons to talk about him and his rightful claim as the future of Pinoy basketball.
