    MBB’s Pangos Named to Division I-AAA ADA Scholar-Athlete Team

    CLEVELAND – Gonzaga senior guard Kevin Pangos was named to the 13th Annual Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (DI-AAA ADA) Scholar-Athlete Team announced Friday.

    The 20 winners of the DI-AAA ADA Scholar-Athlete Women’s and Men’s Teams were announced by the Association. In addition, the Association also selected both a men's and women's scholar-athlete of the year and postgraduate scholarship winners. Pangos joins fellow Bulldog Sunny Greinacher from the GU women’s basketball team in receiving the prestigious honor.

    “Our Association congratulates this year's scholar-athlete award winners,” stated Tim Hall, chair of the Division I-AAA ADA Scholar-Athlete Team Selection Committee and athletics director at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. “We pride ourselves in honoring deserving student-athletes who exemplify I-AAA athletics and this year is no different, as we recognize the scholar-athletes of the year and the postgraduate scholarship recipients for their outstanding accomplishments.”

    A physical education major and sport management minor, Pangos has earned a 3.21 grade-point average during his time at GU. He was named to the West Coast Conference All-Academic Team this season and is a member of the Gonzaga Dean’s List and WCC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

    Pangos, the West Coast Conference Player of the Year and a four-time All-WCC First Team selection, led the record-breaking Zags to a 35-3 record and Elite Eight appearance in the NCAA Tournament. From the point guard spot, he ranked second in the NCAA an assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.55 and averaged 11.6 points while leading the team with 81 three-pointers. Additionally, he led the team in assists (4.8 apg), steals (1.3 spg) and free throw percentage (.824). Earlier this year, Pangos broke the GU all-time threes record of 288 and ended his career with 322.

    Basketball players from all Division I-AAA ADA member institutions are eligible for these prestigious awards. Each of the nominees was required to have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 (on a 4.00 scale) in undergraduate study and have been a starter or important reserve with legitimate athletics credentials. Nominated student-athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games listed on the nomination form. To be eligible for nomination to the Scholar-Athlete Team, he/she must have reached JUNIOR academic standing at their institution (ineligible athletics transfers are not eligible). To be eligible for the postgraduate scholarship, he/she must have completed eight semesters or the equivalent number of quarters at their institution. Preference was given to those on track to graduate in spring/summer 2015.
