The All-Eurocup First Team is comprised of guards Errick McCollum of Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul and Mardy Collins of Strasbourg, forwards Vlado Micov of Galatasaray and Davide Pascolo of Dolomiti Energia Trento and center Alen Omic of Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas. The All-Eurocup Second Team features point guard Kevin Pangos of Gran Canaria, 2016 Eurocup Rising star Mateusz Ponitka of Stelmet Zielona Gora, forward Victor Rudd of Nizhny Novgorod and big men Julian Wright of Trento and Stephane Lasme of Galatasaray.
Omic’s dominance in the paint was a big reason Gran Canaria reached the Eurocup Semifinals for the second years in a row. Omic was fourth in the Eurocup in rebounding (7.6 rpg.) and led his team in scoring (14 ppg.). He was twice the weekly MVP this season; Omic dropped 18 points and tied the for the most of any player this season with 17 rebounds against Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem in the Last 32 finale and then posted 20 points and 8 boards in a win over Zielona Gora in the quarterfinals opener.
Pangos’s rookie season was one to remember. He helped Gran Canaria come within a shot of returning to the Eurocup Finals by dishing the ninth-most assists (4.8 apg.) in the competition and ranking third in three-point accuracy (51.2%). Pangos was also second on the team in scoring (11.9 ppg.). He recorded one of the best games of the regular season with 31 points at MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg. Pangos showed he was built for big games in the knockout stages when he averaged 6 points more per game in the second legs than he scored in the first legs.
