Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netKai Sotto made his much-awaited preseason debut and the Gilas cadets escaped University of the East, 63-61, for a rare win in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup Tuesday night.Sotto was the center of attention and did not disappoint with a couple of dunks and blocks to finish with five points, three rebounds and two blocks, making the most out of his 13 minutes of action.ADVERTISEMENT The 7-foot Sotto may not have produced eye-catching numbers, but his stats did not show how big of a role he played for the young Nationals.“Isn’t it great to be a 7-footer. Aside from his frail body, I think he’s a smart player. He knows what’s happening. For a 17-year-old, I think he knows what’s happening and that’s surprising,” said Gilas coach Jong Uichico after his squad’s second win in seven games.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“He played the whole fourth quarter and most of the fourth quarter he did not make a mistake mentally.
