When Jon Scheyer led Duke to 2010’s national championship, it wasn’t his first summit: In 2005, he was part of a suburban Chicago high-school squad that won the Illinois title—with an all-Jewish starting five. Today in Tablet Magazine, Ben Cohen catches up with Scheyer, who is now in Tel Aviv playing for Maccabi, who are the Yankees—or, if you prefer, the Blue Devils—of Israeli basketball.
