Number 31 – Orlando Johnson, SG, Sr., UC Santa Barbara

He has the size. He has the upward progression. He has ever-growing confidence. He has a final year to prove himself as one of the nation’s best. He also wants to get back to the NCAA tournament.

Johnson caught the country’s attention when the Gauchos made it to the NCAA tournament and played Florida. He scored 21 points in the defeat. After playing well on the big stage, USA Basketball invited him to join tbe Men’s World University Games team. He was the flag-bearer at the games.

Johnson’s back story is interesting. Kinda makes you want to root for him, doesn’t it?

Life is good for Johnson. Life could be even better. This season won’t be a surprise to anyone. The secret is out. How will he handle the spotlight?

2010-2011 STATS: 21.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.9 apg, 1.2 spg, 2.7 TO, 47.5% FG, 40.5% 3PT
