2015-16: A SAC all-freshman team selection, Pangallo was the third highest scoring freshman in the league with 8.8 points per game and the fifth highest scoring Eagle for the season. He topped out at 20 points in a loss at home to Tusculum when he went 7-of-16 from the field.  Pangallo led Carson-Newman in assists with 3.5 per game and handed out at least five helpers on 11 occasions.  He set his career high for assists with eight as he helped guide Carson-Newman back from a 21-point deficit at Newberry.  That game also featured the highlight of Carson-Newman's season when Pangallo banked in a three from the top of the key as time expired to give the Eagles the win.  He shot 43 percent from the field and 45 percent from three.  Pangallo sank 85 percent of his foul shots. Pangallo hit double digits for scoring on 12 occasions, including five consecutive from Jan. 27 - Feb. 10.  He led Carson-Newman in assists 13 times.  He had a career high four steals against both Mars Hill and Johnson C. Smith. 

High School: Zack Pangallo comes to Carson-Newman from Newport Central Catholic High School where he averaged 11.5 points and 4.2 assists per game as a senior.  He finished his Thoroughbred career as the school's third all-time leader in assists. Pangallo spurned multiple Division I baseball scholarship offers to come to Carson-Newman for basketball. On the hardwood, Pangallo helped guide Newport Central Catholic to a trio of All A state titles as a well as a quartet of District 36 championships.  He played under head coach Ron Dawn, the father of Marshall University great Ronny Dawn who drained a 35-foot three to hand WVU a 58-55 loss in 2005. He is a two-time All A State MVP and landed on all-tournament teams for the 9th Region and 36th District.  He is a two-time Division II Dave Cowens Mr. Hustle Award Winner.  Thanks to his accomplishments in the classroom, Pangallo earned Academic All-State first team honors three years and is a member of the National Honor Society. 

Personal: He is the son of Jennifer and Chris Pangallo. His uncle Nick played basketball collegiately at Northern Kentucky while another uncle Rocky starred for the Eastern Kentucky baseball team.

Benson on Pangallo: "He was a successful multi-sport athlete in high school," Benson said. "He's one we feel like we stole. He is the definition of true point play, especially with the way we want that position to be played.  He can shoot as well as create for others. He won at such a high level in high school that he understands the elements that lead to winning."
