NCAA: Johnson's Three Ball Helps Seal Bucknell's NIT Upset of Arizona

Bucknell's Bryson Johnson (St. David '09) hit a clutch three-pointer with just under 1:00 to play in regulation as the Bucknell Bison travelled to Arizona and pulled off a 65-54 upset over the Arizona Wildcats, the top-ranked team in that quadrant of the bracket.

Johnson's three came with the game very much in doubt, and the Bison leading 58-54.  His shot gave Bucknell a 7-point lead and they would add four free-throws (Johnson hitting 2 of them) for the final 11-point margin.

Johnson logged 30 minutes of action, finishing with 14 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3PT, 2-2 FT) and added 1 rebound and 2 assists.

"It felt better when it went in," Johnson said with a smile about his clutch shot. "All we worried about was getting stops and moving on to the next play so I knew it wasn't over, but I definitely felt better when it went in."

Bucknell will travel to the University of Nevada to play the Wolfpack in their next NIT game, scheduled for this Sunday at 3:00pm Eastern.
