Vargas averaging near double-double with Reach USA

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The now legendary tweet about his head coach that Josh Harrellson sent out last year has been tabbed as the turning point for Harrellson's storybook senior season. By and large, it was the beginning of a transformation.

But maybe Harrellson's summer had an effect as well. If you can remember back to last summer, Harrellson traveled with Reach USA on a cultural exchange tour through China and developed into one of the stars of the team.

Harrellson came back a more confident player and had a huge game at the Blue/White Scrimmage before he tweeted about John Calipari.

Well, maybe the same thing is happening for current UK big man Eloy Vargas. After averaging just 1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 38 games for the Wildcats last year, Vargas is having is having a pretty good summer with Reach USA in China.

Through six games, Vargas is averaging close to a double-double with 9.8 points and 9.0 rebounds. He's also blocking 1.7 shots per game. Playing against a Lithuanian club team and a Brazilian all-star squad, Vargas is 24 of 54 from the field and has scored in double figures in five of six games.

Below is Vargas' statistics so far. Reach USA is scheduled to play three more games in China. You can keep up with Vargas' progress on the Reach USA website.

Vargas will be a senior next year.
