That's great to see... His statistics don't match up to some of those others, but the intangibles he brings to this team is immeasurable.

It certainly is different, ZF.

KenPom's WCC 1st team has been the same for over a month. These 3, a 4th big (Zach Collins) & NWG.

Interesting to see 3 of the top 10 Centers in the country are out of the WCC . . .

Yes, it is nice to have three of 10 big men in the country recognized out of the WCC; howeve, PK is so multi-deminsional and more so than the other two...
Just an opinion BUT I think if GU's finishes the regular season undefeated, PK has to get the nod...especially, if he dominates against SMC and at home against Mika...

"......but the intangibles he brings to this team [are] immeasurable." What a great way to credit Karno for "the full Monty"
he brings to the table. Only one poster has challenged my season long contention the no other player in D-1 is as valuable to his team in so many different ways than Karno. Just add the "immeasurable intangibles" to Karno's stats and you've got it, period/exclamation point!
And..........just 13 Zag losses when he's played! All time Zag leader in career wins. Says a lot , no?

It's funny how one of the top 10 center (KAJ Award nominee) isn't even included on the list of top 68 seniors in the NCAA on DraftExpress: http://www.draftexpress.com/rankings/NCAA-Seniors/1/

Zach is 21st on the Freshmen list, Tillie is 32nd. Perkins is 81nd on the Sophomore list, NWG is 30th and JWilliams 47nd on the Junior list. Jordan Matthews is 42nd senior according to DE.

I know those rankings are pretty subjective but seriously, Karnowski not included in such a list is a joke.

And a sad one at that! Karno could play Rodney "I get no respect" Dangerfield. All he'd need is the tie! Deserves much better.

Wow, very surprising. All the more reason to hope Zags enjoy a historic run through the NCAA tourney...PK deserves more national recognition and such a run would give him that. Go Zags!!

I'm surprised that kentucky's and Bayloe's centers are not on the list.
