That’s A Wrap: Xavier Johnson

Welcome to “That’s A Wrap,” our player-by-player recap of the 2021-2022 Indiana Hoosiers. Today: Xavier Johnson.

Johnson (34 games): 12.1 points, 5.1 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 40.6 FG%, 38.3 3PFG%, 78.2 FT% in 27.7 minutes per game.

Xavier Johnson put his name in the transfer portal last spring after three seasons at Pittsburgh. Not long after, he picked Indiana over Baylor, Houston and St. Joseph’s.

He walked into a program which already had two point guards, but new head coach Mike Woodson chose Johnson for the starting role. While it took some time to figure out how Rob Phinisee and Khristian Lander fit into the equation, Johnson remained steadfast in commanding the offense.
