2010 Player Highlights: Billy Johnson

Billy Johnson's decision to come back for his final year of collegiate eligibility turned out to be a good one. The 5th-year senior provided much needed leadership on a roster comprised mainly of freshman and sophomores, which helped guide the team to an Institute record 22 victories. In addition to his role as a team captain, Johnson played well on the court as well, surpassing many career milestones this year, including the 1000 point mark (becoming just the 23rd player to do so in MIT basketball history). He finished his career with 1053 points, good for 20th best all-time at MIT. In all, Johnson was a part of three 20-win seasons for the Engineers (05-06, 08-09, and 09-10), and the teams he has been a part of have won a total of 90 games (in games he has appeared in, the team has won 73 out 108).

Keeping with the same format as last week, there is an extended highlight clip that is 4:00 minutes long, and an abbreviated clip that is 2:00 minutes long.
