We all know what he can do against Northwestern. Now imagine what he could do in a tournament full of Northwestern level competition. Averaging 16 ppg over the first 7 games of the Jones Cup isn’t bad, especially for a kid who will be lucky to see 16 minutes in any game this coming year. Abu-Shamala is of course playing for the Jordanian National Team. In the championship game against Athletes in Action, which featured players from barely DI college teams, he scored 11 points.

Go outside…winter is on the way.
