Medina Roa is developing his talent in Argentina, where he is a member of the Regatas Corrientes team. The native of the Falcón state arrived at the Corrientes club after having played in Arquitecturas, his first team. Since his arrival at Regatas, the 19-year-old had only played in the development league, but on March 13, Medina Roa made his professional debut.

The 2.18-meter young man saw his debut materialize in the match between Regatas and Instituto de Córdoba, a match that the latter team ended up winning by a score of 89-76. Medina Roa alone saw action for 56 secondswithout registering any statistical contribution.

This Thursday the 30th, Regatas will once again see action in the Argentine National Basketball League, this time they will face the downcast San Lorenzo team, who after being a historic player in the league are now in the penultimate place with a 6-27 record , so Medina Roa could be seeing minutes of play again.
