John Shurna

6-8 junior forward, Northwestern

Northwestern is the only major-conference team that's never made the NCAA tournament, and if the Wildcats are to end a 71-year drought, Shurna will undoubtedly play a chief role. The 6-foot-8 wing burst on the scene last season, averaging 18.2 points and 6.4 rebounds. The strange exit of Kevin Coble doesn't hurt as bad as one would think because Shurna basically plays the Coble role, and plays it at a very high level.
