Harkless could not help the Portland Trail Blazers (39-39) in their last game on Monday. Despite his very good performance the Portland Trail Blazers (39-39) were edged 110-109 on the road by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Harkless scored 17 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. There are only three games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Harkless has reliable stats this season: 10.1ppg, 4.5rpg, 1.2apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 56.4%(235-417), 3FGP: 35.1% and FT: 64.3%. He has both American and Puerto Rican nationalities. Harkless is also a member of the Puerto Rican senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Puerto Rico.

Jose Juan Barea

   #4. Point guard Jose Juan Barea (183-84, college: Northeastern, currently plays in NBA) contributed to a Dallas Mavericks' victory against the Milwaukee Bucks (40-39) 109-105 in the NBA in Sunday night's game. Barea scored 17 points and added 6 passes in 23 minutes. The Dallas Mavericks have 32-47 record this season. There are only three games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Barea's stats this year are: 10.8ppg, 2.3rpg and 5.4apg in 34 games. He is also Puerto Rican national team player.

Richard Chaney

Shabazz Napier
Shabazz Napier
   #8. Point guard Shabazz Napier (185-91, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Maurice Harkless. But that was another game of his team in NBA which we would like to mention. Napier was not able to secure a victory for the Portland Trail Blazers (39-39) in their game against the Utah Jazz (49-30). He scored 5 points in 13 minutes. The Portland Trail Blazers (39-39) were badly defeated 106-87 in Salt Lake City by the Utah Jazz. This year Napier's overall stats are: 3.4ppg, 1.1rpg and 1.3apg in 47 games. He holds both American and Puerto Rican passports. Napier plays currently for the Puerto Rican national team. Apparently he has never played in Puerto Rico.

Javier Gonzalez
Javier Gonzalez
   #9. International point guard Javier Gonzalez (185-89, college: N.Carolina St., currently plays in Slovakia) couldn't help Iskra Svit (22-18) in their game against Prievidza (28-12) in the Slovakian SBL. He recorded only 4 points and added 5 assists. Iskra Svit was crushed 90-67 on the opponent's court by the higher-ranked Prievidza (#3). Gonzalez averaged so far 11.5ppg, 3.3rpg, 4.9apg and 1.8spg. Worth to mention Gonzalez played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball. He is also in the roster of the Puerto Rican national team.


The list of other players, who all have Puerto Rican passport but never been selected to any of Puerto Rican national teams:

   #1. Walter Hodge (183-PG-86, college: Florida, currently plays in France) was the major contributor in an ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's victory against the 14th-ranked Hyeres-Toulon (9-17) 73-59 in the French ProA last Monday. Hodge recorded 12 points and added 9 assists. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (13-12) is placed eighth in the ProA. This season Hodge has relatively solid stats: 13.6ppg, 2.0rpg and 6.0apg. He has a dual citizenship: U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rican.

   #2. Emanuel Ubilla (188-PG-86, agency: Court Side, college: Fair Dickinson, currently plays in Hungary) led ZTE KK to a victory over the tenth-ranked Szolnok (3-17) 97-89 in the Hungarian A Division in Thursday night's game. Ubilla was the best player in that game. He recorded a triple-double by scoring 30 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and passing 10 assists. Zalakeramia-ZTE KK (18-10) is placed fourth in Places 1-5 group. It's Ubilla's first season with the team. Ubilla has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.4ppg, 5.4rpg, 8.2apg and 1.3spg. Ubilla is another player who holds two passports: Puerto Rican and American. He used to play for Atleticos de San German in Puerto Rican league.

   #3. Ivan Aska (201-F-90, college: Murray St., currently plays in Greece) could not help PAOK (13-11) in their last game. Despite Aska's good performance PAOK was crushed 84-59 on the road by the leading Olympiacos. He was the top scorer with 14 points. Aska also added 5 rebounds in 20 minutes. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Aska has reliable stats this year: 11.5ppg and 4.5rpg in two games he played so far. He has both U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rican nationalities.

   #4. Experienced Rafael Perez (193-G/F-82, agency: Paris Global Sports, currently plays in Venezuela) was not able to help Marinos (6-7) in their last game on Friday. Despite Perez's very good performance the fourth-placed Marinos (6-7) was badly defeated 98-82 in Caracas by the lower-ranked Panteras (#5) in the Eastern Conference. He was the top scorer with 17 points. This season Perez averages: 9.0ppg, 2.1rpg and 1.2apg. He also holds two passports: Puerto Rican and Venezuelan.

   #5. Nick Leon (181-PG-88, college: St.Peter's, currently plays in Mexico) contributed to a Halcones de Ciudad Obregon's victory against one of league's weakest teams Aguilas Doradas de Durango (3-7) 90-86 in the Mexican CIBACOPA last Tuesday. He scored 13 points, grabbed 6 boards, dished 3 assists and stole 3 balls in only a mere 1 minutes. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon (5-3) is placed third in the CIBACOPA. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Leon averaged so far 13.4ppg, 2.0rpg and 2.0apg in eight games.

   #6. TreVon Hughes (183-PG-87, college: Wisconsin, currently plays in Turkey) was not able to secure a victory for Duzce Belediye (10-21) in their last game. Despite Hughes' good performance Duzce Belediye was crushed 83-52 in Balikesir by the higher-ranked (#10) Bandirma Kirmizi. He was the second best scorer with 11 points in 26 minutes. Hughes averaged so far 15.0ppg, 4.9rpg, 4.4apg and 2.2spg in 27 games. He holds both American and Puerto Rican passports. Interesting that Hughes has never played in Puerto Rico.
