He recorded 23 points and added 9 passes in 36 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Vasquez's third season in pro basketball.

He averages: 14.2ppg, 4.6rpg, 9.2apg, 2FGP: 45.6%, 3FGP: 38.0% and FT: 76.2% in the 40 games he played so far. Vasquez is currently a member of the Venezuelan senior national team.
