KEVIN PANGOS Powers Gonzaga Past St. Mary's

(Jim Allen/The Spokesman Review)

Add another chapter to the legend of Canadian freshman PG KEVIN PANGOS. Ever since his first big game, a 33 point scorching of Washington State, Seth Sommerfeld called for his name to be capitalized. Well, NCAA Daily obliges. After scoring 27 points to end St. Mary's 12 game winning streak, KEVIN PANGOS deserves his props. He went 5-6 from long distance, made all of his foul shots and just added to the lore of a first year that has him leading the Bulldogs in scoring.

Robert Sacre and Gary Bell each scored 12 points while Gonzaga won 73-59. This was sweet revenge for a team that had blown them out previously and a major win against a St. Mary's team that is 22-3 after this latest stumble. St. Mary's Australian star guard, Matthew Dellavedova, scored 20 point to lead the Gaels. St. Mary's still leads the West Coast Conference with an 11-1 record, but with Gonzaga and BYU, this conference should have a very interesting finish.
