Returning starters, short or long, have spent time on the injured list. Some of the key sharpshooting recruits aren’t panning out to what they’re supposed to be.

But that’s not the case for one junior college transfer transfer. Junior Blake Hamilton – a wing by trade – has played multiple positions on the floor and considers himself a matchup nightmare.

Johnson will be able to medically redshirt this season and return to the Bulls next fall for his final year of eligibility.

But if you watched the games, you saw the Bulls begin to make strides as they head into the final stretch of non-conference play.
