I personally do not recall ever seeing anything remotely like that in an NCAA basketball game. JJ's performance reminded me of Reggie Miller's feat against the Knicks in the playoffs. It was just insane to watch. Everything he threw up went in.
I put a highlight video together in case you missed it:

Johnson was just on fire that night, it was a pleasure to watch. College basketball fans can appreciate what he did out there. It's a shame Iowa fans were only able to see JJ play for two years!
This video is about to put your blog on the map for a while. Great work.ReplyDelete
Damn, JJ was En Feugo. How many fans were at Carver last night? Place looks more empty than KOK's Tecmo Bowl play book. I love moral Ws.ReplyDelete
If you're looking for a comparison: Tayshaun Prince hit 5 3-pointers on UK's first 5 possessions against UNC in '04.ReplyDelete

(under the Indiana section). That was some terrific shooting; I wish Oklahoma had some players like that. Peace!
