Johnson hits 2,000 points

One night after Katie Ohm became the state's leading career scorer, a southeastern Minnesota boys basketball player reached the rare 2,000-point mark for his career.

David Johnson of Hayfield hit 2,000 by making a free throw midway through the fourth quarter of his team's 65-50 victory over Cannon Falls Friday.

Coach Chris Pack says that by his count, Johnson is the 33rd boy in Minnesota history to reach that milestone.

Johnson scored 26 points, 16 in the second quarter, and added 12 rebounds and five blocked shots to round out his performance.

Teammate Noah Hamer contributed 17 points, including five three-pointers. Hamer made threes for three consecutive Hayfield baskets early in the third quarter the counter a small rally by the Bombers.
