FIBA – Talented U17 generation to take Hamburg by storm

HAMBURG (FIBA U17 World Championship for Men) – An impressive group of up-and-coming players from around the world will be on display when the FIBA U17 World Championship for Men gets underway in Germany on 2nd July. The draw for the tournament took place in the German city on Wednesday.

Here is a look at some of the most intriguing names and prospects to keep an eye out for.
Kevin Pangos (Canada)
Kevin Pangos used last year’s FIBA Americas U16 Championship as an opportunity to show that, as well as being a talented scorer and shooter, he can help his team in other areas too.

The 6ft guard led Canada to a bronze medal finish and was successful in everything he did. He averaged 18.4 points, ranking him fourth among all players. His 10 of 22 shooting display from beyong the arc ranked him second in three-pointers made and fourth in accuracy (45.5 percent). He led all players in free-throw shooting, connecting on 26 of 29 attempts (89.7 per cent).

In addition to his proficiency in those scoring categories, Pangos also ranked second in both assists (5.0) and steals (3.6) and was unquestionably leading by example as the Canadian finished behind the USA and Argentina to book a place for the FIBA U17 World Championship in Hamburg.

Edited to add: If you don't know who Kevin is, here's one of many threads on guboards (http://www.guboards.spokesmanreview.com/showthread.php?t=20643) about him.

I like this kid! Bell is a killer but I like Kevin. We won't go wrong with either. I wonder if the fellas are still in touch with him. We snagged a good one in S Idaho. RIght here is our PG of the future though.

Over the years, Derek Raivio, Rotnei Clarke, Brett Kingma, perhaps others have been described as Dickau-like.

Pangos could actually merit the comparison.

For the record, I was the first to call him Steve Nash 2.0; can I copyright or trademark that? :p
