Vassallo is the best prospect in the small forward position in Puerto Rico.
After graduating from Virginia Tech, he played in Puerto Rico for Caguas and then moved to France where he played in the All Star Game and was selected as the MVP of that game.
In the 2009 FIBA Americas Championship he had a perfect game against Brazil in the second round with 20 points, shooting 8-8 from the field and 1-1 from the free throw line and with no turnovers.
In the 2010 FIBA World Championship he will be a valuable weapon - especially on offence.
