Adding Karnowski boosts Gonzaga up to 13th in Pre Season Poll

13. Gonzaga

Buzz: The Bulldogs will miss C Robert Sacre. But if Karnowski is good as many analysts say (he has been compared to a young Marc Gasol), Sacre won't be missed for long. Karnowski, 19, played for Poland in the U19 world Championships last fall, and as with many big Europeans, he is well-schooled fundamentally. While he is said to lack athleticism, a skilled 7-footer is gold in college basketball. He joins Elias Harris (a German native), Sam Dower and Kelly Olynyk (a Canadian) to give the Zags one of the nation's biggest frontcourts. The backcourt will be good, too, with Gary Bell Jr., Kevin Pangos and David Stockton.

This feels a bit high to me at this point. This is still a mostly young, unproven team that will need to get some good production from someone at the SF position. Still the potential is there, and that is a lot of what these polls are based on. I think the concerns about Harris are off base as well as I fully expect him to be dialed in next season (just needs to learn to avoid cheep fouls).
