Former Runnin' Utes Forward Karl Bankowski Still Bringing It

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Utah men's basketball fans might remember Tom Chambers, who both played in the NBA for a number of years and was an All Star Game MVP, and Danny Vranes, whose number hangs in the rafters of the Jon M. Huntsman Center. Chambers and Vranes formed one of the most talented and intimidating front court tandems in history of Utah basketball. But what many may not remember is the third member of that front court trio, Karl Bankowski.

Bankowski was a 6-7 wing from Schenechtedy, New York.

Banko talks with us on The U Fan Cast and answers many questions, including the one many fans would love to hear from an insider: Who was better, Vranes or Chambers?
