It’s Donald Johnson’s court. Everybody else just plays on it. The Phoenix phenom passed 1,000 career points in Valentine’s Day action versus the Black River Pirates as Oberlin cruised to a 67-45 Patriot Athletic Conference win. Johnson had a team high 21 points. The Pirates’ Zach Hawley topped that total, though, with 24 to his name. Devan Yarber pitched in 16 more for Oberlin.
