SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Gonzaga University junior Kevin Pangos is among the final 23 candidates on the watch list for the 2014 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award announced today by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The original watch list of 80 candidates was narrowed to 23 by a nationally based committee.

“The 23 athletes on this list represent the most committed, determined and skillful point guards in college basketball,” said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame. “We are honored to be recognizing their strengths and are excited to move forward in the selection process.”

Pangos, from Holland Landing, Ontario, is nominated for the second straight year. He is one of three Bulldogs to start all 27 games to date, averaging 15.2 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.0 assists/game and 1.2 steals/game. He has scored 1,275 career points to rank 21st on the all-time Gonzaga list, just 66 points shy of surpassing John Stockton for 20th.

Now that he's healthy, no telling how far he can go.

Pangos' offensive skill set and statistics have clearly declined due to his injuries (certainly understandable). It is a credit to the committee that it did not penalize Pangos for the limitations created by his injuries. Actually, his ability to play extended minutes and lead the team despite his injuries dramatically demonstrates his commitment and determination to the team and the game of college bb. I am sure it is the way Pangos has played through his injuries that has impressed the committee as much as anything. Now that he seems to be getting over his injuries, I am hopeful to see his full skill set on display once again. I recall during the Memphis game that Bilas commented how Pangos was unstoppable in Maui. I would love to see some of that Maui magic through the rest of the season and into the NCAA's.
