If you love basketball, you would probably have seen some of the live matches at the FIBA Asia U16. The tournament was packed with some great talent and some nailbiting finishes and made for some great watch. And now that it is over, we can't just stop pondering over what we saw over the last few days.

About the Tournament

The FIBA U16 Asian Championship has just ended in Foshan, China and Australia have come out as a winner of the tournament. But one person that has come out as a key player from this championship is Kai Sotto of Philippines.

In fact, such was Scotto's stint and performance in the championship, it hs left many wide awed. Even many sports betters didn't expect him to do well, a reason only a few made it big with the right game predictions on Betvictor.

Kai Sotto future of Philippine's Basketball:

With his stint in the FIBA U16 Asian Championship Kai Sotto has established the fact that he definitely is the future of Philippine Basketball. Batang Gilas's race in the U16 championship might have been over, and they have failed to register any medal, but Kai Sotto has definitely emerged as a winner.

The skill with which he plays the game is unmatched. The 15-year-old lad has shown immense talent with the way in which he used techniques of rebounding, blocking and efficiency. Each and every game that Kai has played was a treat to watch for any basketball lover. His efficiency score with six games that he has played has been 21.5 PER which is the best in this championship. Even Iran's best player Matin Aghajanpour couldn't beat him with a PER of 20.4.

The Filipino was a debutant in the SEABA U16 championship in 2017 and who knew he would be the most talked player in the next season. This hyped centre from Batang Glias was just 6 foot 11 then but now has turned to a 7-foot tall guy who was the key player behind Philippine's semi-final entry. He also made some noteworthy contributions on the personal front while playing for Batang Gilas. With his extraordinary rebounding skills, he registered 13.5 rebounds which are a tournament-best and that too, per game. He is certainly someone oppositions will now fear more than ever.

Moreover, with great defensive ability and blocking of 2.5, he has made a name in the tournament. With 16.8 per game, he is also 5th in the scoring, and that makes up for a huge achievement.

Philippine eyes the FIBA U17 World Cup:

Owing to a remarkable performance by Kai sotto Batang Glias made it to the semi-finals in the FIBA U16 Asian Championship, and irrespective of losing to China with a 54 to 60 defeat the Philippine basketball team has made a roaring entry in the FIBA U17 World Cup. He has much time in hand to brush up his skills before the U17 world championships and register a record as an Asian in the books of basketball and get his country to new heights.
