Summary:

Przemek Karnowski is a skilled center that possesses adequate low post scoring skills and is a surprisingly good passer from the post.  He was one of the stars of the 2015 NCAA Tournament, but a back injury prevented him from playing for most of 2016.

But this year, he was one of the best players on a very good Gonzaga team that went to the title game.  He will need to show that he can handle better athletes and play at a faster tempo, but he is a smart basketball player that has a knack for making the right play on both ends of the floor.  As of now, he could end up being a possible second round pick for the upcoming draft.​
