United States for United Statesians

The big reason Devoe Joseph, the outstanding (Minnesota Golden) Gophers basketball recruit from Canada, couldn't attend summer school is because of an immigration issue. Joseph, as a foreign student who will attend college in the United States, is prohibited from entering the country more than 30 days before school starts. -- Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Well, it did seem right to give Joseph some benefit of the doubt when it was learned he wasn't playing in a summer league with most of his Minnesota teammates. It's good to know that there were some extenuating circumstances.
