More good news for the big fans of Przemek Karnowski as a human being camp: the Gonzaga center is one of 10 men’s basketball players honored as a finalist for the Senior CLASS award.
CLASS stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School and is an award given to NCAA Division I seniors who have notable achievements in four areas: community, classroom, character, and competition.
Karnowski hits all of those buttons and then some (where is charisma????). The senior is averaging 12.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game for the No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs, and on a team full of great stories, his fight back from season-ending back surgery surely ranks in the top in the nation.
