Kevin Pangos Life

Kevin Joseph Pangos (born January 26, 1993) is a Canadian professional basketball player for FC Barcelona Lassa of the Liga ACB and the EuroLeague.

He spent his college basketball career with the Gonzaga Bulldogs of the West Coast Conference.

Sporting News named him the 2015 WCC Player of the Year and a third-team All-American.

Pangos has also represented Canada on the international stage.

In 2018, he was selected for the All-EuroLeague Second Team selection.

Early life

Pangos, a third-generation Slovene Canadian, is a descendant of the former Yugoslav Republic of Canada. He has a Slovenian passport. Pangos played youth hockey, as did many young Canadians. He had family ties to the sport, an uncle played in the NHL, and a cousin was drafted by the Washington Capitals, but not as much as basketball. In any case, he had much closer ties to the sport than ever before. Bill's father played basketball for the University of Toronto and spent his 26th season as the head women's basketball coach at York University in Toronto, while his sister Kayla played under their father at York University.

Steve Nash, a Canadian who rose to be one of the NBA's top point guards and a two-time MVP, was a main inspiration as he grew up. Pangos paid close attention to reports about Nash throughout his youth; he said in a 2013 interview, "Steve Nash will make 500 shots a day." I thought I had to make 500 shots a day."

Despite having played for various national and provincial youth teams, he often trained alone or with his father as there was little high-level action in Ontario.


Kevin Pangos Career

High school career

Pangos played for Dr. John M. Denison Secondary School in Newmarket, Ontario. In his senior season, he led Denison to the OFSAA Triple-A title game where he scored a game-high 26 points in a 69–64 loss to Anderson CVI. He is highly respected for being one of the top players to come from a high school in the Regional Municipality of York .

College career

Pangos received offers from several NCAA Division I schools including Michigan, Temple, UNLV, Portland, and Cincinnati. Notably, he and Trey Burke were both offered scholarships to Michigan, but only on a first-come, first-served basis; Burke accepted first. Pangos opted for Gonzaga after receiving favorable reviews from Kelly Olynyk and his family; the Pangos and Olynyk families are longtime friends in the closely knit Canadian basketball community.

In his second NCAA game against Washington State he scored 33 points and tied a school record with nine three-pointers made in an 89–81 victory. This game kicked off a stellar 2011-12 freshman season at Gonzaga, as Pangos led the team in many statistical categories including points, assists, steals, minutes played, 3-pointers made, and free throw percentage. He helped Gonzaga to a 13–3 record in the West Coast Conference, good enough for second place, and a 26–7 overall record.

In the WCC semi-finals Pangos led Gonzaga by BYU in a 77–58 victory, scoring a game-high 30 points on 10–17 shooting. Pangos did not perform well in the 2012 West Coast Conference finals in a 78–74 overtime loss to Saint Mary's. Pangos shot just 3–18 from the field and 1–10 from three-point range.

Gonzaga entered the 2012 NCAA men's basketball tournament as a #7 seed. In his first NCAA tournament appearance, Pangos scored 13 points on 5–7 shooting and added 5 assists in a lop-sided 77–54 victory over West Virginia; however, Gonzaga would lose to #2-seeded Ohio State in the third round of the tournament 73–66. Pangos would score just 10 points on 3–13 shooting.

On January 29, 2015, against Portland, Pangos broke Blake Stepp's school record of 288 made 3-pointers. As of March 11, 2015, Pangos currently has a school-record of 313 3-pointers, which is good enough for fifth place all-time in West Coast Conference men's basketball.

In 2016, Pangos joined the Lithuanian club Žalgiris, with whom Pangos signed a "1+1" deal. In May 2018, he was named the All-EuroLeague Second Team for the 2017–18 season.

On July 25, 2018, Pangos signed a two-year deal with FC Barcelona Lassa of the Liga ACB and the EuroLeague. Due to an injury, he played three games during the 2019-20 season. Pangos parted ways with Barcelona on July 5, 2020.

On July 6, 2020, Pangos signed with Zenit Saint Petersburg of the VTB United League and the EuroLeague.

On July 23, 2021, Pangos officially parted ways with Zenit.

On September 17, 2021, Pangos signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers. On February 19, 2022, he was waived.

On February 23, 2022, Pangos joined Russian club CSKA Moscow, signing a contract until the end of the 2023–2024 season. He did not make his debut with the team due to subsequent 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and its implications.

On July 27, 2022, Pangos signed for Olimpia Milano of the Lega Basket Serie A (LBA) and the EuroLeague.

National team career

Pangos played for the 2009 Canadian Cadet Men's National team that won bronze at the 2009 FIBA Americas Under-16 Championship, where he averaged 18.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 3.2 steals per game.
