Former UConn F shines in Wisconsin's preseason opener

Former UConn forward Michala Johnson had 24 points (on 12 of 15 shooting) and eight rebounds to lead Wisconsin to an 80-49 win over Winona State in a preseason game on Sunday.

Johnson, who played in 56 games during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons with the Huskies, sat out last season after transferring out of UConn due to a lack of playing time.

"With Michala, I already knew that she could do this," Wisconsin coach Bobbie Kelsey said. "We’re happy to have her. I know that she wants to play, and we’re going to play her, as you can tell. She can do a lot of things out there—not only at the block but also at the high post area and running the floor. When we rebound like we need to and she gets out and runs, that’s hard to stop because there’s nobody in front of her.”

Wisconsin faces UW-Stevens Point in its final preseason game on Thursday before opening the regular season against Drake on Sunday.
