Johnson was able to find the range on two baseline jumpers, cut to the lane for two layups and also found teammates for easy baskets in transition.Johnson’s scoring was backed up by a tenacious Dibrell defense, led by Elliana Morales. Morales entered the game in the second quarter and threw a block party underneath the Warren County goal.
