The Gonzaga Bulldogs have just advanced to the Elite Eight, and the talented Przemek Karnowski is a big reason why they have made it this far in the NCAA tournament.
Karnowski has been a matchup nightmare for teams across the country, even against some of better teams. Karnowksi dominated against the UCLA Bruins tonight, where he recorded an impressive 18 points and nine rebounds. Karnowski creates so many problems for opposing teams, which is why he is so important to this Gonzaga team.
The Bulldogs have so many options on the offensive end, and this is definitely the best team that coach Mark Few has ever had at Gonzaga. Karnowski can dominate on both ends of floor against any team in the country because he plays smart, fundamental basketball. He knows how to use his size to his advantage and has great footwork.
Even if Karnowksi has an off night in the paint, the Bulldogs have another big man who can take over on the offensive end. Domantas Sabonis is a terrific freshmen who is going to need to play at a high level if the Bulldogs want to make it to the Final Four. A potential matchup with Duke or Utah will be a tough game for the Bulldogs because both teams have a great post presence, but Karnowski and Sabonis will still be able to dominate on both ends of the floor.
Karnowski is not only one of the best big men on Gonzaga; he is one of the best big men in the nation. He truly is a nightmare to prepare for.
