Broadcast preview: Humboldt vs. Johnson

I'll be at Humboldt tomorrow for the first time in my two-year career calling their game against Johnson. Humboldt has played more competitively in the last couple years with three Hicks sisters contributing solid performances for the Hawks. Johnson picked up a few transfers before the transfer rule went into effect, and it has paid off. The Governors are 8-3 in non-conference play, compared to 4-9 last year. Their turnaround shows in the overall record column as Johnson sits at 15-4 compared to 13-12 last season.


1. Johnson comes in with a six-game winning streak.

2. As a team, Johnson is averaging 72.8 points per game against Humboldt's 55.7 points per contest.

3. Tacita Gonzalez leads the St. Paul City Conference in steals and assists.

4. Johnson defeated Humboldt 77-53 in their first meeting. Carolyn Mobley scored a game high 30 points in that contest.

5. Johnson's next game is a rematch against Central with the Twin Cities championship game at stake.
