Northwestern junior forward John Shurna, a Glenbard West grad, has been named to the John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 list.

The list is comprised of 50 student-athletes who, based on last year's individual performance and team records, are the early frontrunners for college basketball's most prestigious honor.

Shurna was a second-team All-Big Ten selection last season, pacing the Wildcats with averages of 18.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. His 619 points set a Northwestern single-season record and helped the team to a program-best 20 victories and its second straight appearance in the National Invitation Tournament.

The Big Ten Conference led all conference with 10 individuals being named to the list. Shurna is joined by Robbie Hummel, JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore of Purdue, Kalin Lucas and Durrell Summers of Michigan State, Illinois' Demetri McCamey, Ohio State's William Buford, Penn State's Talor Battle and Wisconsin's Jon Leuer.
