Harris scored a game-high 15 points and Johnson added 14 points and nine assists. Johnson, working out of the high post, scored or assisted on Bloom’s first 18 points of the contest.

“I feel I did a good job replacing our star big man. I did whatever I had to do and kept straight. It was fun. I was just trying to focus, get rebounds, catch the ball and finish.” — Parks
