Gonzaga grad Kevin Pangos has been tearing up the EuroLeague for Zalgiris Kaunas, and it has not gone unnoticed. He was named as one of five players to the All EuroLeague Second Team.

Pangos helped lead Zalgiris Kaunas to the EuroLeague Final Four for the first time since 1999. He has averaged a shade over 12 points while shooting over 47 percent from long range. Pangos, who started every game for Zalgiris this season, kicked up those notches in the playoffs, averaging 17.6 points and 5.3 assists.

Zalgiris will take on Fenerbahçe Doğuş out of Turkey in the first round of the Final Four. If Zalgiris wins the EuroLeague title, Pangos will be the second Canadian to ever win a crown, alongside Anthony Bennett.

Kevin Pangos holds the all time record for three point shooting at Gonzaga, with 322 made. He is tied with Dan Dickau for most three pointers in one game, when he shot nine against Washington State in his second game as a Zag. He has the fifth most assists and the second most steals.

The EuroLeague Final Four begins on May 18.
