Friday News:

It was a lot of fun to watch Northwestern's John Shurna win both the Hampton Hotels Men's 3-Point Contest and the Pure Protein Battle of the Champions at the Final Four in New Orleans last night.

Shurna, who said beforehand he had never shot off a rack before, knocked down his final seven shots to claim his gender's title by one point and then facing off versus USC's Ashley Corral put up an unbeatable score of 24.

Coach Mitch Henderson - 3/28/12.

In the extended "season finale" of their weekly interview series, Tigers head coach Mitch Henderson and editor Jon Solomon sat down courtside at Jadwin Gym this afternoon for a seventeenth and final time on the year.

Solomon and Coach Henderson looked back on Princeton's CBI games at Evansville and Pittsburgh in great detail before touching on the season as a whole, including if there was a specific point where Henderson realized his team could actually be pretty good and if there was a defining moment for the year.

Henderson also discusses if it is possible to carry over the season’s strong finish through the summer, heading to the Final Four this weekend, what he hopes to get out of that trip, who he wants to bump into in New Orleans, if he and his staff are done recruiting for the class of 2012 and for the first time provides details on the team's planned foreign trip this summer.

This exclusive Q&A is 23:00+ in length and can be streamed after the jump.

Feel free to also explore a full archive of Solomon and Henderson's weekly discussions from 2011-12.
