John Shurna had one last memorable moment to give Northwestern fans before he departs campus. One more memory to give Northwestern fans.
Shurna arrived in New Orleans for the 3-point contest and a college all-star game (it will be played tomorrow, but airs Saturday at noon on truTV). He left the talk of the college basketball nation and almost the undisputed 3-point champion. The best part was probably that you could see the smile on his face after just about every shot.
Shurna got better with every round, going from 14 to 20 to 21 to 24 to win the State Farm College 3-point contest. He was clutch, hitting many of his money balls. And in a classic final round battle with Juan Fernandez with Temple, Shurna hit his first seven shots and his last seven shots to win by one. And bring all the glory to Northwestern.
So I think it is time to relive it. I put together a collection of tweets from myself, friends of the blog and Northwestern athletes and personalities. Relive the awesomeness from Shurna with this Storify:
