Jefferson Davis Community College Warhawks basketball player DaWaun Johnson will be continuing his playing career at Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
The 6-1, 180-pound Johnson led the Warhawks in scoring this past season with a 16.1 points per game average. Johnson shot 40 percent from the field (162-for-402), 35.7 percent from three-point range (35-for-98) and 74.7 percent from the free throw line (59-for-79). Johnson was more than just points. He led JDCC in assists this past season at 3.19 per game.
Those numbers helped land Johnson on the All-Region 22 Second Team and a First Team spot on the Alabama Community College Conference South Division First Team.
The former T.R. Miller Tiger came to JDCC this season after a one-year stint at Austin Peay University.
Northwestern Oklahoma State is an NAIA school located at Alva, Ok. Last year the Rangers went 22-12 and advanced to the NAIA Elite Eight.
Gainer expects Johnson to play a two spot, a shooting guard, at Northwestern Oklahoma State.
