Johnson tallied 13 points and five rebounds against Michigan on Friday, though turned the ball over five times and passed up a layup attempt in the closing seconds of the 87-85 OT loss in the Sweet 16.

Johnson made some careless mistakes and curious decisions in this contest. He was called for a flagrant foul early in the game after hitting Michigan center Mitch McGary below the belt. He then decided to pass the ball out for a contested three-pointer in the last few seconds of overtime, instead of shooting the ball from close range with at least some angle on a layup. Johnson finishes his senior campaign averaging 9.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 4.6 dimes per tilt.
