Sitting just 17 points behind Billy McKinney on Northwestern’s all-time scoring list, John Shurna was a great bet to make history Saturday night against Minnesota. The senior star did just that in the double-digit victory, hitting a 3-pointer midway through the second half to put his name atop the program’s scoring list. Watch Shurna set the record and see the reaction from the Welsh-Ryan Arena faithful now. From all of us at BTN.com: Congratulations, John!
Congratulations to my good friend John Shurna! He is now the leading scorer in Northwestern basketball history!—

John Shurna now Northwestern's career scoring leader. Couldn't happen to nicer kid. Should hit 2,000 mark before he's done — in the NCAAs?—
