The Gopher basketball team is under a scholarship crunch this season. They have a commitment from Al Nolen Jr. from Patrick Henry, but are still hoping to land Jon Leuer of Orono and Blake Hoffarber from Hopkins. Jamal Abu-Shamala was awarded a scholarship after being a walk-on last year and will be on scholarship next season. He could give up his scholarship or hope that someone transfers.
