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
