Gonzaga is a fun team to watch. Well coached and a quintessential college team in their approach

AB, I agree that Karnowski is a massive man. He looks like a Viking with that beard. Also, Collins looks like the real deal. If he sticks around for a few more years, the Zags should continue to be one of the best college teams.

IMO, Mark Few should never leave Gonzaga. Sure, he could get paid more, but overall quality of life and job security will never get any better. BTW, the same holds true for Jay Wright at Nova.

Karnowski looks like he's 30, lol. And yes, he is big. His vertical jump isn't impressive but he is what, 300 lbs. I agree that Gonzaga is a great college team. Play as a team, maybe will not have the can't-miss NBA player but will continue to get very solid recruits.

That big bearded dude has some touch to his game. His height, size and soft hands can be useful at the next level.

Karnowski is listed at 7-1 & 300 lbs. I'd say he's every bit of both. Could definitely see him in the NBA.

Kempton played in an All Star game on CBS Sports Network. He lead the game in scoring (21) against what looks like some decent competition, but there probably was not a whole lot of D played:

I saw CBS had Kempton ranked in the high 60's in this year's draft. Unfortunately for him, there are only 60 draft picks.

CBS has Kempton at # 69. But the CBS list only includes four international players. Last year there were 16 international players who were taken in the draft. If you included all of the ones who are likely to be picked this year, he drops to 80th or worse. Some lists do not have him in their their top 100.

If you are going to get drafted in the 2nd round which is not guaranteed money, isn't it almost better to not get drafted at all? That way, you can try to sign with the team that needs for your specific skill set.

Yes, it may be better - especially for those taken in the second half of the second round. Americans taken in the first half usually end up,with guaranteed money. But it is all over the lot for later picks, with all kind of deals involving stashing the players in the D-League or Europe. Here is an interesting article about all of the ramifications of the second round:

Karnowski will be playing over in Europe, not in the NBA. He would lead the NBA in getting HIS shots blocked if he made a team. He'll find a lucrative spot on a Euro League team.

Collins will be a lottery pick in the NBA draft. He has declared for the draft after an impressive freshman year. Lot of talent and upside there.

The Zags will need to re-load but they always seem to do that and win!

The Lehigh board is reporting that PF Matt Holba is transferring. He is a sophomore who would have had three years of eligibility remaining. Started about half the games this year.

Coming on top of the transfer of SF Brandon Alston, who likely would have started next year, this is a huge loss. Brett Reed is a great recruiter, but not very good once the players get there.

I don't think many would dispute that - even Lehigh fans.

This article shows how very fortunate Mike was to get a shot at the NBA, let alone be as successful has he has. Hopefully, he has a good post-season and gets a good offer from the Hawks.
