GLENDALE, Ariz. – Gonzaga big man Przemek Karnowski was named to the Senior CLASS All-American First Team on Friday.
The redshirt senior was joined on the team by Washington State’s Josh Hawkinson, who is the first Cougar to be elected to the team. Villanova’s Josh Hart was chosen as the Senior CLASS Award winner.
To be eligible for the Senior CLASS Award, which stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, a senior student-athlete has to display excellence in four categories – classroom, community, character and competition. The award winner and team are chosen annually by a nationwide vote of NCAA Division I basketball coaches, fans and media members.
Karnowski was initially voted in January to a list of 30 candidates, which was narrowed to 10 in the middle of February.
Duke’s Amile Jefferson and Kansas’ Frank Mason III were selected for the final two spots on the team.
