Johnson, a 5-5 point guard from Santa Monica, Calif. led her squad to the Sweet 16 of the CIF State Playoffs, as Santa Monica High School upset the No. 3 team in the nation, Long Beach Poly, en route.
The pass-first point guard was named First Team All-Ocean League, averaging nine points per game, including a season-high 24 points against Palos Verdes.
As a junior, she led Santa Monica High School to the Division I State quarterfinals, averaging 8.0 points per game and 2.3 steals per contest while handing out 3.2 assists per game. For the season, she doled out 107 assists while recording 73 steals, all while shooting 47 percent from the field.
She played summer ball for the Cal Storm Elite, an club team out of Southern California and coached by George Quintero, which has produced a stable of Division I and WNBA players.
"Kristina, K.J., is a true point guard and competitor. She played AAU basketball for the Cal Storm, one of the most nationally recruited programs in the country under coach George Quinterro. She is a strong and very skilled athlete that understands how to run an offense and create shots for her team as a point guard. K.J. plays with a toughness- both physical and mental- that I love to see in a player. She will bring much needed experience and confidence to our point guard play. We're really pleased K.J. has chosen to be a Tiger."
