VANCOUVER,BC–In a trip back to his hometown of Vancouver, 7’0 senior Rob Sacre posted a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds in a victory over Hawaii 73-54.
The North Vancouver product out of Handworth High School is currently averaging an impressive double-double aftering threee game, 17.7 PPG, 10 RPG and nearly two blocks per contest.
Fellow Canadian and breakout freshman Kevin Pangos (Holland Landing, Ontario) also registered a solid game with 12 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals.
Pangos is averaging a ridiculous frosh stat line of 18.7 PPG, 3.3 RPG & 3.3 APG.
It was a very unique experience for both players to be playing an NCAA game on home soil.
“It was great to get support from Canadians and hear the national anthem pregame again,” Pangos laughed.
“Vancouver is a great city, I thought it was real nice,” the freshman point guard tells NPH.
This game in Vancouver was scheduled in light of the fact that it is Sacre’s final year year before graduation.
After asking Pangos about a possible game in his small hometown of Holland Landing, he laughed and responded, “I hope I am good enough in my last year for them to schedule a trip back home somewhere…that would be sweet!”
The victory over Hawaii moves the Bulldogs to 3-0 on the season.
Gonzaga’s next game will be on Saturday, November 26 as they suit up against the Western Michigan Broncos.
