The collegiate career of senior guard Robert Johnson ended with a championship and a briefcase full of cash.
In the inaugural 3X3U Championship, Johnson hit the game-winning shot to give his Big Ten team the victory over the team from the Big West. Games were played to 21 points and the Big Ten won 21-13. After winning the championship, the team was presented a cash prize of $50,000.
The other three seniors on the team were Ohio State forward Jae’Sean Tate, Minnesota guard Nate Mason and Purdue guard Vincent Edwards. Their total winnings for the tournament were $55,000, which they will split among themselves.
In the championship game, Johnson scored five points in seven minutes of action.
