And here we thought Ozzie Guillen's Twitter account would be the most entertaining connection SportsNation had to Venezuela this month.

But as interesting as it was to find out the White Sox skipper was eating sushi yesterday at spring training, it wasn't nearly as interesting or entertaining as the show Maryland's Greivis Vasquez, born in Venezuela, put on against Duke in his final home game. Behind 20 points from Vasquez, the Terps beat the Blue Devils and claimed a share of the ACC lead with one game to play in the regular season.
