He's earned it. They'll never be another Karno. To make the mark he has in a time when no one wants a back to the basket center anymore is more than enough to give him the award. I think no matter how good the Zag's are next year we'll still miss Shemmick......and in many more ways tha one!

He didn't tweet it, he retweeted a guy/fan saying that he will get it. Big difference ;)

Great picture for me! Must be The Big O!? Look at those hands. Watched both Oscar and Elgin Baylor play back in the day.
Talk about smooth! Both Oscar and Baylor could play today. Not to many from the '60's could.

ZagNative. Thanks very much for posting. Much appreciated!

Man, this is just great! Shem also won the fans vote for the National Senior Class Award. His popular vote victory from fans was offset by, you know, an unnamed panel of..........

Josh Hart won the award, but Karno won both the votes and hearts of the fans. Can't beat that!

How did Ralph come up with Neegel? Surely that was rehearsed multiple times.

Bad news. But the good news is that Gonzaga had two players represented, everyone else a measly one. PDG!
Congrats to Nigel and Shem. Two great guys!

I am so glad his career ends with this, missing bunnies in his last game was not the way he wanted to go out I am sure, but playing for the National Championship was. This award puts the cherry on top of a fabulous career, for as thorough a zag guy as there ever was.

Off-topic a bit, but interesting to me, years ago, I came across a Life Magazine I'd saved around 1974 because of the coverage it contained of Nixon and Watergate. The cover of the issue was a stunning photo of Kareem vs. Wilt Chamberlain. I photocopied the cover and saved it because it was so spectacular.

Man, those are some great legs!
