Marcin Gortat congratulates "Polish machine" Przemek Karnowski

Wizards

Gonzaga beat South Carolina Saturday night 77-73 to advance to the NCAA Tournament Championship. Judging by his social media posts, Wizards center Marcin Gortat was happy with the outcome of the game. 

Gortat posted this photo on Instagram shortly after the game, congratulating Gonzaga's Przemek Karnowski, who he describes as "polish machine," "mountain," and "Poland's finest."

Gortat's hashtags aren't an exaggeration. The Gonzaga big man is a mountainous 7' 1" and 300 pounds, is Gortat's backup on the Polish national team, and started the second half of Saturday's game after suffering what looked like a very painful eye injury in the first half (much like a machine). Karnowski and Gortat room together when they travel internationally with the Polish national team.

Karnowski will play as a Gonzaga Bulldog for the last time in Monday's championship game against North Carolina.
