Kai Sotto continues to impress by numbers while training in the United States.
Sotto, who committed to The Skills Factory (TSF) Nationals, flirted with a triple-double, just one statistic shy from the feat with 20 points, 11 rebounds, nine blocks and four assists in TSF’s rout of AB 121-51 Thursday for Sotto’s second game with the Atlanta-based basketball organization.
Jordan Brown led TSF’s scoring with 24 points to go with three assists and two steals while Jordan Wilmore poured 22 points, 10 boards and five blocks.
Markeith Browning contributed 14 while Koby Jeffries and Jaylin Galloway had 10 points each.

TSF fell to IMG 65-61 last Sunday despite Sotto’s double-double performance.
The former UAAP junior’s MVP joined TSF last Saturday in a bid to strengthen the chances of joining the NBA.
TSF has also honed the talents of NBA stars like James Harden, John Wall and Kemba Walker in its Professional Level program.
TRIPLE DOUBLE?! @kzsottolive almost had one! He was a “block” short 😳The 7’2” big man scored 20 points (9-11 fg), 11 rebounds and 9 BLOCKS!!! Plus he had 4 dimes against ABI.
