Johnson has connected on just four of his last 14 shot attempts, but he’s continued to make major contributions in other areas. He had a game-high seven assists in the Tigers’ 89-73 win over Southern Miss on Saturday and has grabbed five or more rebounds in six of the last eight contests. Christon, a Cincinnati native and former top-30 Class of 2012 prospect, has been named Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week a league-high five times and has scored in double figures in 14 straight games. He’s shooting 45.7 percent from the field overall, but just 16.7 percent (4 of 24) from 3-point range.
