Johnson was the only other Wildcat to earn post-season honors from the conference, as he was one of nine players selected as honorable mention all-conference performers. Johnson leads Central Washington in rebounding for the second consecutive year, posting an 8.2 rebounds-per-game average, which is also tops in the GNAC. He also leads the Wildcats in free throws made (103), free throw percentage (78.6), and his 12.0 scoring average is third-best on the team.
