Shurna gets a call from USA basketball
yes, you read that right. seventeen players were invited to try out for the USA Men's Under-19 World Championship roster, and John freaking Shurna is one of them. based on the other sixteen names, i can't imagine that he will actually make the team, but this is pretty heady stuff for Northwestern basketball and for Shurna, who will get some first-class coaching for once courtesy of Jamie Dixon. best-case scenario for NU is that Ralph Sampson III comes out of the tryouts with at least one torn ACL.
