Jeremy Pargo (23, 1.88 m), one of the most intriguing guards in the NCAA in recent years, has signed this morning for one season with Hapoel Gilboa/Galil. He'll replace Brian Roberts who left for Bamberg of Germany, and will join Dion Dowell and Isiah Swann.
Pargo, Jannero's younger brother, has played the last four seasons with the University of Gonzaga. After one year in the shadow of superstar Adam Morrison, he became a regular starter as a sophmore.
Last year he averaged 10.2 points, 3.4 boards and 4.9 assists and helped the "Zags" regain the WCC crown and make the NCAA tournament Sweet 16, in which the team lost to future champions, North Carolina.
Pargo went undrafted, but had 10.0 points and 3.0 assists for Detroit Pistons in the summer league. He also worked out with Orlando Magic, but decided to take his chances abroad.
Galil/Gilboa, who finished third in the league last year, is known as a great place for youngsters to step up their game. Last year, Illinois' Brian Randle and Dayton's Brian Roberts were considered among the best players in the league even though they had no prior pro experience.
