Jalen Green posterizes 7-foot-2 Kai Sotto again
MANILA, Philippines–It was déjà vu all over again on Wednesday after Jalen Green, the prolific Fil-American guard, put the 7-foot-2 Kai Sotto on another poster in the 2019 NBTC League National Finals.
Green, who just seemed to have Sotto’s number, blew past his defender before exploding to the rim from the left baseline and threw down a nasty one-handed dunk over the Ateneo star in the second quarter of the game between FilAm Sports and the Blue Eaglets.

But as if it still wasn’t enough, the 6-foot-5 Green got a steal on the next play then flushed home a two-handed slam off a lob.
Green, who is the top US high school recruit in the 2020 class, dunked on Sotto during the same tournament last year. The only difference was, his latest poster had a little more emphasis.
