He recorded 23 points, 4 assists and 3 steals in 29 minutes on the court. Maccabi Hunter Haifa (11-11) is placed sixth in the Winner League. It's Vargas' first season with the team.

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

   #1. Experienced Clarence Matthews (201-PF-83, college: Tennessee St., currently plays in Uruguay) could not help Goes (18-10) in their last game on Friday.

   #3. Rafael Melgarejo (184-G-91, currently plays in Spain) was not able to help AEC Collblanc in their game against Olivar (9-12) in the Spanish EBA (fourth division).

It was AEC Collblanc's fifth consecutive loss in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This season Melgarejo averages only 4.9ppg.
