From JUCO to Division 1. That was Shunn Buchanan's plan and he executed it after one season at Northeast Community College.
The former Madison Central star announced on Sunday that he will play college basketball at New Mexico State University.
"I just had to go to JUCO and grind it out." Buchanan told WLBT/Fox 40 Sports. "I didn't really let it discourage me, I just kept faith in God and just kept faith in my game and kept working."
Buchanan averaged just 12.7 pts/game for the Tigers during the 2016-17 season. In high school he played a key role on the 2015 Madison Central team that finished as the 6A state runner-up.
