JOSE JUAN BAREA
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Puerto Ricans who are currently playing abroad.


Jose Juan Barea
Jose Juan Barea
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced international point guard Jose Juan Barea (183-84, college: Northeastern, currently plays in NBA). He was the major contributor in a Dallas Mavericks' victory against the Los Angeles Clippers (16-8) 114-110 in the NBA in Sunday night's game. Barea scored 24 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line) in 27 minutes on the court. The Dallas Mavericks have 12-11 record this season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Barea's fifth year with the team. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Barea averages: 11.5ppg, 2.4rpg, 5.7apg, 2FGP: 49.4%, 3FGP: 29.4% in 22 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Puerto Rican senior national team.

David Huertas
David Huertas
   #2. Second place goes to an international swingman David Huertas (195-87, college: Mississippi, currently plays in Mexico). Huertas led Fuerza Regia to a victory against the sixth-ranked Libertadores (6-10) 85-74 in the Mexican LNBP (second division) last Thursday. He recorded 22 points and added 3 assists. Fuerza Regia Monterrey (12-5) is placed second in North group. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. This season Huertas has very high stats. He averages: 18.4ppg, 3.5rpg, 3.7apg, 2FGP: 46.0%, 3FGP: 38.5% and FT: 77.1%. Huertas is in the roster of the Puerto Rican senior national team.

Ricardo Sanchez
Ricardo Sanchez
   #3. The Puerto Rican player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Ricardo Sanchez (212-87, currently plays in Brazil). He could not help Brasilia (2-8) to beat SKY/Basquete (4-8). Sanchez scored 9 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 32 minutes. But the bottom-ranked Brasilia lost 63-76 on the road to the higher-ranked (#11) SKY/Basquete. It's Sanchez's first season with the team. This year his overall stats are: 8.8ppg, 3.6rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 38.7%, 3FGP: 42.5% and FT: 92.9% in 10 games. Ex-Cangrejeros de Santurce player is also a member of the Puerto Rican senior national team.

Shabazz Napier
Shabazz Napier
   #4. Point guard Shabazz Napier (185-91, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA) was not able to help the Brooklyn Nets (9-18) in their last game on Friday. Despite Napier's very good performance the Brooklyn Nets (9-18) were defeated 131-125 in Memphis by the Grizzlies. He scored 18 points and grabbed 6 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). But the season just started, so everything may happen. Napier has relatively good stats this year: 7.9ppg, 1.7rpg and 1.5apg. He has a dual citizenship: Puerto Rican and American. Napier used to play for the Puerto Rican national team back in 2016. Strangely he has never played in Puerto Rico.

Carlos Rivera
Carlos Rivera
   #5. International point guard Carlos Rivera (187-83, college: Hofstra, currently plays in Mexico) is a teammate of previously mentioned David Huertas and both played together in the last Mexican LNBP game. Rivera contributed to a Fuerza Regia's victory against the sixth-ranked Libertadores (6-10) 85-74. He recorded 8 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals in 31 minutes. This year Rivera has relatively solid stats: 12.0ppg, 2.9rpg, 4.5apg and 1.4spg in 17 games. He plays currently for the Puerto Rican national team.

Ethan Thompson
Ethan Thompson
   #6. Shooting guard Ethan Thompson (197-99, currently plays college basketball in the States) helped Oregon St. win their game against the Missouri State University crushing them 101-77 in the NCAA in Saturday night's game. He scored 22 points, grabbed 9 boards, handed out 5 passes and blocked 2 shots in 34 minutes. The Oregon State University has conference record this season. Thompson has reliable stats this year: 11.9ppg, 5.3rpg, 2.6apg and 1.3spg in seven games. He is another player who holds two passports: Puerto Rican and American. Thompson is a former U18 international player as he played for the Puerto Rican team two years ago. Apparently he has never played in Puerto Rico.

Maurice Harkless
Maurice Harkless
   #7. Former international swingman Maurice Harkless (203-93, college: St.John's, currently plays in NBA) was not able to secure a victory for the Portland Trail Blazers (14-11) in their game against the San Antonio Spurs (12-14) in the NBA. Harkless scored 8 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, passed 3 assists and added 3 blocks. The Portland Trail Blazers (14-11) were defeated 131-118 in San Antonio by the Spurs. It was Trail Blazers' third consecutive loss in a row. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Harkless has been at the team for four years. His total stats this season are: 3.8ppg and 3.2rpg. Harkless has both American and Puerto Rican nationalities. He used to play for the Puerto Rican national team two years ago. Interesting that Harkless has never played in Puerto Rico.

Filiberto Rivera
Filiberto Rivera

Carlos Lopez-Sosa
Carlos Lopez-Sosa
   #9. International forward Carlos Lopez-Sosa (208-90, college: UNLV, currently plays in Mexico) is a teammate of previously mentioned Filiberto Rivera. But that was another game of his team in Mexican LNBP which we would like to mention. Lopez-Sosa helped Angeles win their game against the seventh-ranked Huracanes (3-15) 77-74. He scored 18 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 34 minutes. Angeles de Puebla (4-14) is placed seventh in South group. They ended the series of five consecutive loses.

Rivas also added 6 rebounds in 34 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. Rivas' stats this year are: 11.4ppg and 7.0rpg in 12 games.
