SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has named its Men's Basketball Player of the Week for January 5, 2015.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK - PRZEMEK KARNOWSKI, JR., C - GONZAGA
In one game this week, junior center Przemek Karnowski made the plays Gonzaga needed down the stretch to defeat Portland on road 87-75. He finished the day with 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and two steals. In the second half alone, he had 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting, including two highlight reel plays. First, at the 10:29 remaining, the 7-foot-1 center caught and inbounds pass and fired up a 22-footer to make the first three-pointer of his career. Then with just 48 seconds left Karnowski took a feed from Kevin Pangos and put down a two-handed slam with a foul and converted the free throw to push the lead from seven to 10 points. Karnowski's two assists came on back-to-back positions where he passed out of a double team to hit Pangos for a pair of three-pointers.
