DWIGHT LEWIS
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Venezuelans who are currently playing abroad.


Dwight Lewis
Dwight Lewis
   #1. This week's number one is an international swingman Dwight Lewis (197-87, college: USC, currently plays in Argentina). He could not help Gimnasia (22-15) in their last game. Despite Lewis' very good performance Gimnasia lost 76-84 on the road to the much lower-ranked (#15) Hispano Americano de Rio Gallegos. He scored 17 points in 33 minutes on the court. Lewis' team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Lewis has relatively good stats this year: 13.2ppg, 2.6rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 49.2%, 3FGP: 32.3% and FT: 74.1% in 37 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Lewis is currently a member of the Venezuelan senior national team. He used to play for Trotamundos de Carabobo in Venezuelan league.

Donta Smith
Donta Smith
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international small forward Donta Smith (201-83, college: SE Illinois JC, currently plays in France). Smith was not able to help Pau-Lacq-Orthez (16-16) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his good performance Pau-Lacq-Orthez was defeated 79-70 at home by the leading Cholet Basket. Smith was the second best scorer with 14 points. He also added 6 rebounds and 3 assists. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This season Smith has relatively solid stats: 12.1ppg, 6.5rpg, 4.5apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 56.3%(72-128), 3FGP: 32.8% and FT: 69.8%. He is a naturalized American. Smith played for the Venezuelan national team in 2015. He used to play for Marinos de Anzoategui in Venezuelan league.

Windi Graterol
Windi Graterol
   #3. The Venezuelan player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Windi Graterol (204-86, agency: Pro Sports, currently plays in Argentina). Graterol led Boca Juniors to a 3-point victory against the 12th-ranked Olimpico de La Banda (17-20) 82-79 in the Argentinian La Liga on Monday night. He recorded 11 points in 24 minutes. Boca Juniors (19-16) is placed eighth in the La Liga. Graterol's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. This year Graterol averages: 5.3ppg, 4.7rpg, 2FGP: 57.1%(12-21), 3FGP: 42.9% and FT: 44.4% in seven games. Ex-Cocodrilos de Caracas player is also a member of the Venezuelan senior national team.

He recorded 13 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Sluc Nancy Basket Pro (21-10) is placed fifth in the ProB. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season.

He scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 15 minutes. But the tenth-placed Azuqueca (13-21) lost 75-81 on their home court in Azuqueca to the much higher-ranked (#3) Marin in the East group.
