Back in August, Alex Johnson became the #1 overall pick in the NBL Canada draft. He was selected by the Ottawa SkyHawks and was the first native Canadian to go #1 in the history of the NBL.
Johnson played his senior season with the Pack in 2011-12 (grad student transfer) after spending his first four season with Cal State Bakersfield. He was known for his leadership, his shooting ability and his capabilities to play both guard positions.
Here is a cool interview that was posted yesterday with Alex talking about being selected #1 and what it means to him and his hometown.
