Orlando Johnson, the best card player name in basketball.


UC Santa Barbara

UCSB are not a very good offensive team. They are heavily reliant on one player on that end, 6'5 junior Orlando Johnson, who leads the team with 21.1 points and 6.3 rebounds, whilst ranking second with 3.0 assists. Only two other players average more than 5.5 points per game; 6'7 junior James Nunnally (16.4) and 6'9 junior Jaime Serna (8.4). Pretty much everything goes through Johnson, a strong and athletic shooter, and it is the jumpshooting of him and Nunnally that carries the team on one end.

On the other end, UC Santa Barbara can throw up to 11 players at you on any one night, and pretty much only play a matchup zone defense, with Greg Somogyi standing in the middle as a specialist shot blocker. Despite all their shooting abilities, Florida - whom UCSB will meet in the second round - struggled against zone defense thrown at them by both Kentucky and Auburn. Then again, the Gators still won both games, and those teams are far better than the UCSB Gauchos. Yes, even Auburn.
