Senior center Przemek Karnowski joined Gonzaga beat writer Jim Meehan for the latest 3-in-the-key, where we learn more about a Zag off from the court.

Q: I notice you have a bad habit, like I do, you bite your nails. Have you tried to stop and what other bad habits do you have?

PK: That’s probably one of the habits you guys can see really often on the bench and on the floor. It’s been with me since I can remember. I had a couple tries, probably more than a couple tries, to stop it but it didn’t go well so I’m still working on it. But at the end of the day it’s just how it is. Maybe in the future I’ll have to stop but it’s just how it is right now.

Q: A must follow on social media of a teammate and then maybe one outside of your teammates?

PK: Probably Kevin Pangos, great Zag, just a great guy in general. Really close friend of mine so I like to follow him and see what’s up with him. Probably from celebrities, “The Rock.” He puts out a lot of motivational stuff out there so I really like to read that and see how he’s doing. I like him in general as well.

Q: Who on the team maybe does the best impressions of a coach?

PK: I would say everyone is there. There is just single impressions, it’s not about just Coach (Mark) Few, but all the coaches, all the assistant coaches, all of our managers making fun of each other. It’s just how this group is and I think everyone is comfortable with it.

Q: It goes back and forth pretty good?

PK: Exactly.
