Former Boilermaker and Big Ten Player of the Year JaJuan Johnson started the game and came out quite hot, grabbing six rebounds in his first six minutes of action, but then the bigger size of the Oklahoma City team seemed to push him away from the basket.
Johnson finished with eight rebounds and three points on 1-of-5 shooting from the field. In my amateur analysis, Johnson seemed scared to attack the basket after the start. He resorted to fading on his jump shot and getting pushed around in the post. At one point teammate Jared Sullinger even jumped over him to grab a rebound.
