We bring you last week's top performances from Venezuelans who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


David Cubillan
David Cubillan
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard David Cubillan (181-87, agency: Pro Sports, college: Marquette, currently plays in Brazil). He contributed to Flamengo's victory against the eighth-ranked Caxias do Sul (2-3) 79-69 in the Brazilian NBB in Thursday night's game. Cubillan scored 8 points and added 4 assists in 28 minutes on the court. Clube de Regatas do Flamengo (3-1) is placed fourth in the NBB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Cubillan averages: 9.0ppg, 2.5rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 77.8% and FT: 66.7% in four games he played so far. He played for the Venezuelan senior national team one years ago.

   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Miguel Ruiz (197-90, also represented by Pro Sports, currently plays in Argentina).

He recorded a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting 14 rebounds. Ruiz also added 2 blocks. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group Center North. Libertad Sunchales (7-3) is placed first. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Ruiz's overall stats this season are: 8.5ppg, 12.7rpg, 1.2apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 53.4% and FT: 65.7%. He is in the roster of the Venezuelan senior national team.
