    He will then brace for South Sudanese big man Majok Majok when the 36ers face off against the Perth Wildcats on Nov. 16, still at MyState Bank Arena.

    Adelaide then gets a preview of its season opener when it takes on the newcomers Tasmania JackJumpers on Nov. 21 at Ulverstone Sport and Leisure Center.

    A rematch against Perth is also set on Nov. 26 at Elphin Sports Center, though the game won't be counted in the Blitz standings.

    Closing out the 36ers schedule will be the Brisbane Bullets, where Sotto gets re-acquainted with Chinese behemoth Liu Chuanxing as they play at MyState Bank Arena on Nov. 28.



      Hopes are high for Sotto for his rookie season Down Under as he gets a chance to prove his mettle in the NBL.

      Adelaide opens its season on the road on Dec. 3 against Tasmania.
