    Thanks for the news.
    What do you think of the Pole’s potential impact? What will missing on him mean?
    Do you know if Cal is trying to bring in anyone else for next season?
    Thank you

    I obviously haven’t seen Karnowski play, but he sounds and appears on video to be a good prospect with upside. He is not a superb athlete, but is skilled and big. I think he would have had some immediate impact and, under Mike Montgomery and his staff, could have developed into a very nice player. They will continue to look to fill roster spots left open by the departure of Alex Rossi and Emerson Murray, but won’t sign anyone merely to fill out the roster.

    moves like thurman, better shooter.

    Gonzaga has a 7-foot center every year.
    Can’t remember any of them being very good ie. Sachre, Heitfelt.

    They might bit be good centers, but Gonzaga does better than we do, every year, so they’re doing something right, and I gotta think the 7 footers are a part of it. Spokane is like hell 6 months out of the year. Yet they continue to out recruit and out perform.

    Might not, not might bit. Ugh…autocorrect

  • B

    Heytvelt was a very good player. Don’t get fooled by his off the court stuff, the dude could play.

  • Uh Huh!

    Maybe I should go back to “Uh Oh.”
