Gosselin-Pauhlos Headed to Southern Conference

Maxime Gosselin-Pauhlos may have been overshadowed by Michigan State-bound teammate, Maurice Joseph, but the athletic wing got plenty of attention and made his decision on Tuesday.

It's not every day that Canadians garner basketball scholarships to colleges in the United States, so it makes sense that Champlain St. Lambert (Toronto, Canada) head coach John Dangelas is excited to see Maxime Gosselin-Pauhlos headed to Davidson.

The 6-6, 185-pound senior wing committed to Bob McKillop's program on Tuesday morning.

Pauhlos is a hard-nosed, tough player who competes on both ends of the court.

``He's versatile and athletic and plays hard and gets after it," Dangelas said. "He plays a lot of different positions and can really finish in traffic and in transition. He plays over the rim and at 6-6, he's a highlight reel."

Pauhlos, who scored an 1190 on the SAT, was also considering Columbia, Yale and Wagner. He also fielded offers from Robert Morris and Stetson while nearly all of the other Ivy League schools expressed interest.

``He said at the beginning that he was only going to consider academic schools," Dangelas added. "It's an honor for us to have a guy from our program play for a coach like Bob McKillop."

Pauhlos becomes the ninth player from Dangelas' program headed to the D-1 ranks in the past five seasons.
