Marquette Career

1971-72 Season (Frosh Team)

Johnson was a starter on the 1971-72 freshman team and averaged 9.3 ppg and 6.3 rpg. That season, he had a season high of 25 points against Olive-Harvey.

Hank Raymonds, coach of the Freshman Team, said the following about Johnson: “Very quick, and jumps well. At this stage defense is his best asset. He's having a hard time adjusting to pattern basketball, but will be a strong offensive player when he does.”

1972-73 Season

Al McGuire redshirted Johnson because, though the talent was there, he needed more development.
