01/24/2009 - Johnson's threes help Northeast in win over Elkhorn

By Jeff Motz
Lincoln Prep

Lincoln----Tommy Johnson was feeling it Saturday night.  The 5-10 Lincoln Northeast junior guard hit six three-pointers and finished with 24 points to lead the Class A 8th-ranked Rockets to a 56-42 win over Elkhorn at Ed Johnson Gym.

Against a 2-3 zone from Elkhorn, Johnson hit two three's in the 1st quarter and two more in the 2nd quarter on his way to a 14-point first half performance.  But the game was close through the first half, as Elkhorn relied on shooting from Matt Raymond, Weston Foxx and Billy Bergland. 

Elkhorn had an early 14-13 in the 2nd quarter, when Johnson nailed a three to regain the lead.  Northeast managed to jump ahead 22-19, when Foxx connected on a big three to tie the game at 22 for Elkhorn.  The Rockets managed to rack up five points toward the end of the half from Johnson and 6-6 center Dol Kutey, who finished with 16 points for the Rockets (10-3).

Northeast took off in the 3rd quarter, off of threes from Johnson and Tyler Francis and only saw their lead creep to within five before racing off to their seventh straight win in a 13-5 4th quarter run.  Foxx led Elkhorn with 13 points, which included a three at the 3rd quarter buzzer to pull to within of Northeast 43-37. 

Raymond added 12 points for the 2-9 Antlers.
