KAI SOTTO struggled for only two markers as the Adelaide 36ers fell short against the Sydney Kings, 93-90, in the Australia National Basketball League (NBL) at the Adelaide Entertainment Center on Sunday.
The 7-foot-3 Filipino sensation made only one basket in four attempts with no rebounds in his 11-minute outing hampered by three early fouls.
It’s the lowest scoring output for Mr. Sotto since bleeding for one marker in his NBL debut last December. He had a streak of solid campaigns since then for an average of 7.5 points and 4.8 rebounds.
Dusty Hannahs fired 24 points to pace the 36ers, who fell to 5-9 after also bowing to the Illawarra Hawks last Friday.
The 19-year-old Mr. Sotto put up a better outing in that loss with six points and six boards before going cold against Sydney. — John Bryan Ulanday
