Former Dayton Flyers star Johnson, getting a good look from NBA teams

Former Columbus Brookhaven and Dayton Flyers swingman, Chris Johnson has been getting a good look from NBA scouts and general managers as a possible pick in the second round of the upcoming NBA Draft.

Johnson, who was a key performer for the Flyers the past four years, averaged 12.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game this past season. It also helped him to have played with NBA Development League player Chris Wright, who received national attention and NBA scouts during his career at UD and in the process, they were able to see the talents of Johnson.

There is some discrepency of Johnson being 6-feet-6-inches tall or 6’3. One of Johnson’s friends in Columbus told me recently that he is every bit of 6’6.

Johnson has been very impressive with his ability to handle the ball, shoot from 3-point land and his free throw shooting. He is also a solid defender.

NBA teams say that he has also been impressive in the interview process during visits.

Johnson, who is being projected as a #2 guard, has spent the past month training in New York.

University of Dayton Flyers senior forward Chris Wright has been selected as the White-Allen Most Valuable Player Award at the team’s annual banquet.

The 2007 graduate of Trotwood-Madison High School in Trotwood, Ohio, is just the seventh Flyer to earn the MVP award three times. Wright’s former teammate, Brian Roberts (2005-2008) was the last to accomplish it. He was preceded by Ryan Perryman (1196-98), Roosevelt Chapman (1982-1984), Jim Paxson (1977-79) , Donald Smith (1972-74) and Henry Finkel (1963-66).

Just the third Dayton Flyer to be named All-Atlantic 10 three-times, Wright led UD in scoring (13.2), rebounding (8.4) and blocked shots(51). He was one of nine players in the nation to be nominated for the Wooden, Naismith and Lowe’s Senior CLASS awards in 2010-11.

Wright leaves the Flyers with his name all over the record books. He finished his career 15th all-time in scoring with 1,601 points in 123 career games. Wright is the school record holder in career blocks (162), career blocks per game average (1.32) and dunks (177). He also finished 10th in career rebounds with 886. He also hauled in 298 career offensive rebounds, which places him fourth in school history. Wright converted 394 free throws, which was good enough for ninth all-time school history. In addition, he finished his career with 31 double-doubles, placing him seventh in UD history.

The White-Allen Most Valuable Player Trophy is sponsored by Tim Allen and the White-Allen Auto Group, Inc. The award is selected by members of the team. The White-Allen Trophy has been awarded annually since 1953. White-Allen now sponsors the MVP  award for UD’s men’s and women’s basketball, football and volleyball teams.

Wright also took home another honor.

As the team’s top rebounder, Wright also captured his fourth straight “Shorty” Sharpenter Memorial Rebounding Trophy. Only two Flyers-Ryan Perryman and Keith Waleskowski-earned the Sharpenter Award as a freshman, sophomore, junior and senior.

The Sharpenter Award is named for Hall of Famer Ned “Shorty” Sharpenter and has been sponsored by his family since its inception in 1979.

Southern Conference player of the year, senior guard Andrew Goudelock scored a career-high 39 points, including eight three-pointers, as College of Charleston beat defending NIT champion Dayton in a first round game in Charleston, South Carolina.
