The other Polish guy. He was the leading scorer for the world team. Are we recruiting him? What were the impressions of his play from game?

I liked him a lot. High skill level, a gamer. Showed good ability and body control going to the rim, hit open shots, pretty athletic.

The commentators mentioned, early in the game, that he is one of the best shooters in the world... Can anyone find any evidence for or against this statement?

This game was not suited to Karnowski's skill set. He does not run the floor or cause havoc on transition defense. And he got blocked more than I thought a 7 footer should.

Again, this was not a great game for the intl players to really showcase their skills outside of raw athleticism.

Wrong Polish guy; Pontika is the 6'6 sg/sf. I listed him as one of the bright spots on that team. Great shooter and very good athleticism, one play in particular, he stole the ball and made a great slam on a break away. He, Fournier, Saric and Bertans were very good.
