JOHN JOHNSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Penn State rallies past Mount St. Mary's 92-82

Guard John Johnson made his presence felt in his first game for Penn State as the Nittany Lions rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit to turn away pesky Mount St. Mary's 92-82 Sunday in the Bryce Jordan Center. Johnson, who transferred from Pittsburgh in December 2012, was eligible to play for the first time against the Mountaineers. He scored 15 of his team-high 20 points...

Ironwood Ridge coach seeks redemption, title

Vern Friedli chuckles when he thinks back on Matt Johnsons dueling passions. Johnson, the Oro Valley Ironwood Ridge football coach, got his start playing for Friedlis Tucson Amphitheater Panthers. He was the left tackle on Amphi's 1990 team that reached the state title game before falling to Mesa 21-7. A year later, Amphi lost in the state semifinals. But football wasnt Johnsons...

Refs Hijack CBI Game 2

I never thought I would write this, but I wish Tim Higgins and Jim Burr could be on the officiating crew for the final game of the CBI Championship. No. I’m not joking.

Pitt has a 6-point lead after Lamar Patterson...

LiveBlog: The Desperate Hours, Pitt-Marquette

Hey, did you hear? The schedule for Pitt gets rough starting today. Yeah, that keeps getting mentioned after every painful lost since the end of December. And sharing the basement of the Big East with other teams that have been on top is not much of a comfort. Coach Dixon appears willing to do anything to get Ashton Gibbs some space to shoot and getgoing. This includes more minutes...

Getting That First Win Without Woodall

No Tennessee is not a particularly good team. They aren’t some low, mid-major either. Nor are they USF bad (have to adjust since DePaul looks kind of frisky this year). What they are is a major conference team, playing at home while struggling with a coaching change and departed talent. Pitt has higher aspirations, but played that game without their starting point guard for the...
