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). He led New Orleans Hornets to a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers (17-23) 111-99 in the NBA in Tuesday night's game. Vasquez was MVP of the game. 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. The New Orleans Hornets have rather weak 13-27 record this season. Vasquez has individually a very good year with high stats. 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.
