Back in the ACB as well (also with old ACB teammate Kyle Kuric), will be playing against Kyle Wiltjer when they play Malaga

Will be interesting to see how the team gels given a lot of new players on the roster (and how many have been picked to play with Kevin).

By bringing in Kuric, Singleton and Smits, Barcelona have three new players that are all very capable 3pt shooters along with KP. Perhaps playing more like Zalgiris did last season..

Interesting summary of Kevin's career to now.......

I love this quote..

"Kevin Pangos went to college at the age of 18, and, in fact, one of the most important ones in American basketball, Gonzaga"

Obviously most know that Kevin will play for Canada over the next week in two games.

here is an interesting article detailing as to what lengths he went to, to ensure he got the chance to play.

I forgot to post about this the other week, but KP looked fantastic for Canada as our starting PG in a clear cut victory over Brazil.
Just confident, in control, making clear decisive decisions and really controlling the game flow. Only real critique was his defense with him being beat off the dribble routinely by an aged (but still effective) Leandro Barbosa. I am not sure he ever lands in the NBA due to his limitations on defense, but I am very happy to see him as one of the best PGs in the world outside the NBA. I'm thinking NWG will be in that discussion this year as well.

Wow. Barcelona gets hammered by CSKA Moscow 95-75 in its first Euroleague game. Kevin came away with 2 points, a single assist, and 4 turnovers in 15:07, with a PIR of -8. Box Score. (http://www.euroleague.net/main/results/showgame?gamecode=2&seasoncode=E2018)

Anybody know what's up with Kevin's poor performance, compared with what he accomplished at Zalgris?

Svetislav Pesic, the coach of Barcelona, cannot be more different from Jasikevicius. Pesic is very oldschool while Jasikevicius is really into analytics. I'm guessing Kevin is now playing in a far different system. Not to mention it was against CSKA, the perennial favorites to win the Euroleague. I'm sure Kevin will bounce back. He was struggling when he first came to Zalgiris as well until he got used to everything.

Barcelona came away with a big win today over TECNYCONTA ZARAGOZA, scoring 99-55. Box Score. (http://jv.acb.com/partido.php?c=977799) Kevin's performance was greatly improved, with 10 points and 8 assists.

I liked this blurb about Kevin's performance, translated: http://www.eurobasket.lt/naujienos/r_seibucio_klubas_nepadoriai_pralaimejo_barcelonai _su_atsigavusiu_k_pangosu_97280/naujiena/97280

The excitement of the game was better in the two formerly unlucky Kevin Pangas, who played tragically in the last two bouts. The Canadian scored 10 points in 19 minutes (2/2 doubles, 2/4 t.), Made 8 outcourses and scored 15 points.

Kevin just dropped a career high 32 points in a win in the Spanish ACB.

He went 9/14 from the field, 2/4 from three, 12/13 from the FT line. Oh and 4 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal & 7 fouls drawn.

He started the first couple games a little slow but had been heating up the last few as he is obviously getting more comfortable. And then this magnificent game. Good stuff!

I’d love to see him on Canada’s World Cup team next summer.

Pangos has a big game in Barcelona win.

http://www.euroleague.net/main/results/showgame?gamecode=108&seasoncode=E2018


It took Pangos most of the game to find his rhythm. Once he did, however, Pangos was unstoppable. He had 13 of his 16 points in the final 7 minutes of the game, making sure Barcelona rallied and came back home with a valuable road victory.

It's been a rather up and down year for Kevin. With both Euroleague and ACB action getting aclimatiswed to his new team/ teammates has been rather like his first year at Zalguiris.

On Sunday, KP and Barcelona faced off against Kyle Wiltjer and Unicaja.

Kevin was perfect from the field (and the line) with a 16 point, 7 assist performance to lead Barcelona to a 94-83 home win.

https://www.eurobasket.com/boxScores/Spain/2019/0127_100_138.asp

1st string PG Thomas Huertel didn't play for some reason so KP got the start and saw 28 minutes of court time.

It will be interesting to see if he continues starting or if he goes back to backup when Huertel is available.

For the second game in a row Kevin played against a Zags alumni.

Barcelona was up against Greek powerhouse Olympiacos, currently the employer of one Nigel Williams-Goss...

The game was played at Olympiacos "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP STADIUM" home court unfortunately for the home supporters they left pretty unhappy.

Chris Singleton (a pain for Olympiacos when he played against crosstown rival, Panathinaikos last year ) top scored with 18 points in the lopsided 76-55 point win.

Kevin started and was the top rated player scoring 9 points and 8 assists (with no turnovers), Nigel also score 9 points for the losing side but had three turnovers vs 1 assist.

http://www.euroleague.net/main/results/showgame?gamecode=162&seasoncode=E2018

Will be interesting to see if KP continues to start, they play against Tenerife on Sunday and currently have a 2 game advantage (in the domestic ACB) over 2nd place Real Madrid.

Brock Motum (played for WSU 2009–2013) was interviewed by pickandroll.com about his BB career, and fielded the following series of questions in the following manner:

The reporter says "Having had the opportunity to play with so many teammates, I was interested in key individuals who had impacted or influenced him throughout his career. [Brock replied:]“Kevin Pangos was a great teammate of mine when I was at Žalgiris,” explained Motum. “He is a point guard and now plays at Barcelona. We were rivals at college where he went to Gonzaga, and he was one guy who I remember as a great teammate.

“Anthony Petrie was a great teammate when I was in Adelaide. He is one of my favourite teammates throughout my career. Just a great guy on and off the court.” He also mentioned Klay Thompson, a former teammate at Washington State, who had been influential throughout his career.""

KP has been a little quiet lately, playing second fiddle to Thomas Heurtel who has been playing very well for the 5th ranked team in Europe.

Today however he led his team to a Euroleague victory over fellow ACB team Gran Canaria.

https://www.euroleague.net/main/results/showgame?gamecode=212&seasoncode=E2018

5/6 from downtown is impressive but maybe even more impressive is a team 19/28 from the deep.

It did take Kevin until his second year with Zalgiris to really hit his stride, he has been a bit hit and miss so far his first year at Barcelona....
