    the one ones I know are Greivis Vasquez from Maryland Terrapins (NCAA) and Jhon Cox who plays for the French Club Nancy in 1st Division.

    Vazques may be the only real hope Venezuela has to make it to Turkey, he's a real talent (a point Guard at 6'6") who can lift a team any time.

    Oscar Torres, Hector Romero and Richard Lugo are the usual stars. And Greg Echenique is apparently one of the best big men prospects in Latin America, if not the best.

    Not anymore: Narvarte has resigned as head coach. He said his reasons were:

    -The official list of players called to training camp is different from the one he had designed. Some players of his choice weren't in it, and it contained some players he hadn't chosen. And he found out about it by the media.

    -The Federation never sent him his contract.

    -The Federation never confirmed a trainer for the team, and training plans were changed almost daily.

    I mean Liberia and Nigeria? Are you kidding me? It's almost sure that they (US Immigration) won't grant visa to these countries' players easily.
    Besides, the real Nigerian NT (Well,at least the US-based players) was in Houston. Toney probably never asked them to come over...
