    Default Karnowski breaks one GU record last night and will set another on Sat

    Coming into the season PK had played in 7 NCAA tourney games going 5-2 (he did not play in the loss to Wichita State) Last night his record went to 8-2 pulling head of Casey Calvery and Mark Spink for all time tourney wins at 7 and tying several for all time tourney games at 10. When he plays on Saturday he will become the all time GU leader in games played in the NCAA tourney with 11.

    And a mind boggling 135 total wins. Even if you take out the 4 wins from last year before the injury he has averaged almost 33 wins/season.

    He's also been a part of two 35 win seasons. If we win tomorrow we will have our first 36 win season, if I'm not mistaken. Mt. K has definitely been a part of a great period in GU BB.

    What is crazy to me is that Karno has been a part of over 1/4 of Coach Few's wins.

    He is a nice, genuine, young man. I can't emphasize how he is with kids, and ultimately as an ambassador for Gonzaga.

    I remember when many (myself included) were calling Karno a bust and that Edwards needs to see the court instead. Well, that's why the staff is sitting on the bench and we are sitting on our couch. Couldn't be happier to be wrong.

    But, but, but... But nothing, Karno is an all time Gonzaga great. A legend in a program full of studs. It's a team game, but the resume speak for itself.

    It's so tough for me to pick a favorite team, player, win, etc... But this year, from day one, this team has been my all time favorite. Part of me feels dirty to say that ha ha, but I've been here from the beginning and it just has all intangibles I like in a team. As for Karno, he has made his way into my Top 3. Which again, is crazy to even state loud. But just who he is, how he plays, what he brings to the court, it's impossible to overlook the numbers. The big man wins big games, period.

    Agree

    Was in school watching j Stockton

    Stories abound from my father who was in school with burgess

    1998-199 team had couple of players I loved

    Pargo I lived

    Pendo I loved

    Mechanical ( some will raise eyebrow on this) I loved ( huge heart)

    Saboniis I loved


    Big Shem does everything that goes unnoticed. All the little things that goes towards wins but doesn't show up in box score but also has box score and resume to back it up for me


    But like Coach Few says...how can you live any family member more than another

    I've posted this many times before, but this tread seems fair game for it once again; " No other player in D-1 basketball is as valuable to his team in so many different ways than Karno."

    I can only add here that when you noted that Shem "does everything that goes unnoticed" you really helped make my case. No stat covers it. Just his presence is worth points and wins. Those everything's that go unnoticed add 8 points a game to the Zag's total. Man, I'm going to miss him!

    The leader, communicator and coach on the floor. There are no stats for that, but the contribution to wins is incredible. And real. The man inside Shem has grown to fill the man outside. Impossible not to respect and love this guy.

    Go Zags! Final Four . . . .and beyond!

    For years I've been saying this, it's no coincidence he's the winning player in NCAA history... While bringing Gonzaga its first Final 4. Karno is a Top 5 legend, and this season put the bow on it.

    Tough to unseat Ronny as my favorite Zag... But Shem is right there.

    After the season concludes and the Mt Rushmore of GU players thread is revisited, there's likely to be a change, haha. Someone is getting bumped off, right?

    Regardless, quite the career.

    This. Coach Lloyd really has an eye not just for guys that can ball, but guys that can become the kind of men that parents are proud of.

    ESPN article, 'The Moment each team made the Final Four.' Gonzaga's Moment? The day Przemek Karnowski got well.

    "The Presence" Always there. The Center of It All.

    I've only had two all time favorite BBall players; Elgin Baylor and Przemek! Wrote Shem a letter and let him know.

    I know there have been some on this board that haven't been what I'd call Shem Believers, I think mostly because he's not
    a new age ( or whatever ) NBA type athletic center/forward. Well, he couldn't help that now, could he? He is what he is and he's become damn good at what he is.

    Sometimes I think that if Shem made a 3 point buzzer beater to win the national championship that he'd still get the berries; Like, "Well, if he hadn't screwed up on that inbounds play he wouldn't have needed to make the shot!"

    You never miss what you have till it's gone!

    PS Apologys for this rant. Probably over generalized, biased and a little angry. I Just love the guy!
