Today Rivals.com has an article on a handful of “low-major” (sorry folks but the Big Sky conference is considered to be a low-major conference by most basketball people) D-1 players who are flying under the Radar. Among the ten players they mention the is the University of Montana’s senior guard Anthony Johnson, Also making the list were Kyle Austin, UC Riverside; Kenneth Faried, Morehead State; James Florence, Mercer; Marquez Haynes, Texas-Arlington; Reggie Holmes, Morgan State; Johnathon Jones, Oakland; Kevin Palmer, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi; Artsiom Parakhouski, Radford; and Ryan Wittman, Cornell
Here is what they had to say about Johnson

See him on: Nov. 29 at Washington
