    Pangos has a big game in Barcelona win.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Default Brock Motum on KP

    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.""

    Not too bad being remembered ahead of Clay Thompson.

    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.

    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....

    After bowing out in the first round (after a good fight) of Euroleague playoffs (they were a 5 seed lost to Anadolu Efes the 4 seed) , Barcelona have swept through undefeated in ACB playoffs to meet Fellow powerhouse Real Madrid.

    Kevin has alternated between starting and bench, with the semifinal series doing both. He averaged 7 ppg, 4 apg with an 11:1 A/TO ratio. He's been abnormally inefficient from the deep which is probably why he is coming off the bench now.

    The final series will be a barnstormer and it will be interesting to see if KP can get his stroke back as that is could be one of the keys to Barcelona winning the series.
