GU’s Pangos learns from the best

Gonzaga sophomore point guard Kevin Pangos called it the highlight of his summer.

Pangos, teammate Kelly Olynyk and ex-Zag Robert Sacre were among 27 players to attend the Canadian senior national team’s five-day training camp in late August in Toronto. Pangos tested his skills alongside NBA players  Joel Anthony, Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph while absorbing instruction from two-time MVP Steve Nash, who is general manager of Canada basketball, and head coach Jay Triano.

“When I got invited it was one of the best things that could happen,” said Pangos, shortly before Gonzaga’s first official practice last Friday. “Just working with NBA guys and Steve Nash, getting individual time just to talk to him. Everyone that is big in basketball in Canada was there. I had a lot of fun in five days.”
