Pangos had 7pts against Memphis. And I know there is the tale of two Pangos, home Pangos and road Pangos. But it's obvious to me that he is not the same player he was at the beginning of the season. His foot is obviously bothering him. The Zags have a 3 game lead for another WCC title. But ultimately what's the goal for the Zags? Another WCC title or a deep run in the dance?
Pangos 2-9 from the field against Memphis. Off the top of my head I think we have six games left, four games on the road. We all know how Pangos plays on the road. Call me crazy but I don't really think the Zags would miss 2-9 from the field with average D.
I think the Zags are deep enough to win enough games from here on out without Pangos to win another conference title.
I'd rather roll the dice and sit Pangos until the WCC tournament and have him rested and healed and getting more from him when it really matters than keep running him out there when he simply isn't right.
