Here is the weekly review of the top performing Venezuelan players, who play currently abroad.


Greivis Vasquez
Greivis Vasquez
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Greivis Vasquez (197-87, agency: Interperformances, college: Maryland, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the New Orleans Hornets (5-14) in their last game. Despite Vasquez's very good performance the New Orleans Hornets were badly defeated 103-87 on the road by the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the second best scorer with 16 points. Vasquez also added 5 rebounds and dished 9 assists in 37 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. It was Hornets' third consecutive loss in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Vasquez has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 12.4ppg, 3.7rpg, 8.6apg, 2FGP: 42.6%, 3FGP: 37.3% and FT: 77.8% in the 19 games he played so far. Vasquez is currently a member of the Venezuelan senior national team.

Luis Bethelmy
Luis Bethelmy
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Luis Bethelmy (200-86, currently plays in Mexico). He led Halcones Rojos to a victory over the 14th-ranked Osos (5-25) 100-89 in the Mexican LNBP (second division) last Thursday. Bethelmy was MVP of the game. He scored 26 points (!!!) and grabbed 9 rebounds. Halcones Rojos de Veracruz (23-7) is placed third in the LNBP. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Bethelmy has very high stats. He averages: 16.3ppg, 6.9rpg, 1.2apg, 2FGP: 65.6%(99-151), 3FGP: 43.6% and FT: 68.9%. Bethelmy is in the roster of the Venezuelan senior national team.

John Cox
John Cox
   #3. The Venezuelan player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard John Cox (196-81, college: USF, currently plays in EuroChallenge). He contributed to a 1-point Paris-Levallois' victory against the third-ranked Belfius Mons-Hainaut (2-3) 90-89 in the EuroChallenge on Tuesday night. Cox scored 7 points in 18 minutes. Paris-Levallois (4-1) is placed first in group E. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the EuroChallenge Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This year Cox's overall stats are: 7.6ppg, 1.4rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 35.7%, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 66.7% in the five games. He is a naturalized American. Cox is also a member of the Venezuelan senior national team. He used to play for Marinos de Anzoategui in Venezuelan league.

Jose Vargas
Jose Vargas
   #4. Swingman Jose Vargas (195-82, currently plays in Mexico) contributed to Soles' victory against the league leader Halcones UV Xalapa (26-4) 92-85 in the Mexican LNBP (second division) in Saturday night's game. Vargas recorded a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting 10 rebounds. He also added 3 assists. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Soles de Mexicali (25-5) is placed second in the LNBP. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. It's Vargas' first season with the team. Vargas has relatively good stats this year: 11.5ppg, 6.3rpg and 3.0apg. He is also Venezuelan national team player.

Michael Carrera
Michael Carrera
   #5. International forward Michael Carrera (196-93, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to an easy victory against the Jacksonville University 91-74 in the NCAA last Friday. Carrera scored 17 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 24 minutes. The University of South Carolina has conference record this season. This year Carrera has relatively solid stats: 11.5ppg, 6.3rpg and 3.0apg in the eight games. He is a naturalized American. Carrera plays currently for the Venezuelan national team. Strangely he has never played in Venezuela.

Gregory Echenique
Gregory Echenique
   #6. Center Gregory Echenique (206-90, currently studies in the States) contributed to an easy victory against the University of Nebraska crushing them 64-42 in the NCAA on Thursday night. Echenique recorded a double-double by scoring 12 points and getting the same number of rebounds. He also added 2 blocks. The Creighton University has conference record this season. Echenique has reliable stats this year: 11.5ppg, 6.3rpg and 3.0apg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Venezuelan National Team roster.

Juan Coronado
Juan Coronado
   #7. International forward Juan Coronado (203-90, is currently at the American university) contributed to an Liberty's surprising victory against the Southern Virginia University (6-4) crushing them 76-51 in the NCAA last Tuesday.

He is also Venezuelan national team player.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Venezuelan passport:

   #1. Javier Roman (207-F/C-80, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division) could not help Leyma Basquet (5-5) to beat Leche Rio Breogan (6-4). Roman scored 5 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 17 minutes. Leyma Basquet was edged 71-69 on the road by the higher-ranked (#4) Leche Rio Breogan. It was Leyma Basquet's fifth consecutive loss in a row. This year Roman's total stats are: 3.4ppg and 2.3rpg in the 10 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Venezuelan and Spanish.
