Sorry for the lack of blog posts over the past week and a half but I have been enjoying spring break in Arizona.
Well, Orlando Johnson keeps getting honored for his great season. Yesterday, Orlando was named a 2010 Lou Henson All-American. This prestigious honor was given to the 30 best Mid-Major players in the country. Some other notable names are Matt Bouldin of Gonzaga, Adam Koch of Northern Iowa, and Shelvin Mack of Butler. OJ and Mack were the only underclassmen on the list.
Other awards OJ has won this season have been 2010 Big West Conference Player of the Year, 1st Team All Big West, 2010 Big West Conference Tournament MVP, NABC First Team All District, and All Big West Tournament.
OJ averaged 18.0 ppg and 5.7 rpg in his first season in Gaucho blue. He scored 20 points in UCSB's first round NCAA Tournament loss to Ohio State.
