Scouting video: Robert Johnson vs. Millwood school

  • 06/19/2014 3:35 pm in


Over the summer, Inside the Hall will be taking a look back at some of 2014 signee Robert Johnson’s top games from his 2013-2014 season at Benedictine College Preparatory.

(Previously: Scouting video: Robert Johnson vs. St. Benedict’s, Scouting video: Robert Johnson vs. Christchurch School)

As a senior at Benedictine, Johnson averaged 24.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 steals as the Cadets finished 25-7 against a schedule with talented teams from across the country.

In the third installment of our scouting video of Johnson, we look back at a February 4 meeting with the Millwood School, a private school in Midlothian, Virginia.

Benedictine prevailed on its home court, 76-62, as Johnson finished with 30 points (11-of-19 shooting), eight rebounds and seven assists in 26 minutes. To start the game, Johnson made five consecutive 3-pointers.

This video, available after the jump, has a little bit of everything to give you a more complete look at Johnson’s game including made shots, some missed shots, a few defensive plays, a few assists and several rebounds as well.

  • Hoosier Pride

    Nothing like back to back to back three’s to start the game.

  • Gregory J. Haggard

    I love this guys energy and basketball savvy………………..and his jump shot as well.

  • SCHoosier

    The Hoosier Hysteria 3 pt shootout should be something to see this fall with Rob, James, Tim , Max & Yogi.. Funny thing is…the women’s team has that record scoring bomber from ILL..who might beat them all???? I think you are going to see a wide open offense for IU this certain players: “If you got it..take it.”

  • Michael

    he is ruthless, love this video

  • banarish

    So far we’ve got Priller the Thriller, Mad Max, and Rob Ruthless Johnson. This is shaping up nicely.

  • Michael

    im gonna go out on a limb and say this team will be top 3 in the big ten!

    having guys like max and RJ coming off the bench will be huge as far as shooting, speed, and ball handling goes. (im sure max needs quite a bit of work on the handling though like most do at that size)

  • banarish

    They’ll certainly be top 3 in the badass nickname contest! But you’re right – these guys have the potential to be great boosts coming off the bench.

  • ForeverIU

    This has come up before. Is there something forced, strained or inefficient in RJ’s shot, or is it just me? I’m not commenting about other aspects of his game, just his shooting form and movement.

  • drewheck

    If it goes in I’m fine with unconventional shooting form

  • Snookafly

    He dips really low with it before he shoots which may be problematic at the next level. He’s getting away with it now because of the competition and the pace, but he’ll start to adjust soon enough.

  • CreanFaithful

    I think it’s just you. what is forced or strained about it? I admit, he tends to draw from down low which can be corrected fairly easily. In fact I felt it improved my shooting ability by eliminating the extra movement. It is also a touch slow, but he’ll figure that out by battling in practice and CTC’s “how many shot’s can you get up in 4 minutes” drill. Outside the low start point, his shot looks pretty fundamentally sound. His between the legs pull back is a bit slow as well, but obviously effective against high school competition. No doubt he will have some adjusting to do. But I’m not sure how you watch that video and have concerns…

  • drewheck

    To back to back he hit 5. Can’t wait for that this season

  • Lets hope there is a surprise contestant who may have improved quite a bit. I’m hoping for Troy Williams to have improved his jumper, although if thats the case, along with limiting his turnovers, he’s most likely a pro.

  • Personally, I prefer Bobby Johnson.

  • ForeverIU

    Seems also to be perfecting his 3-point shot.

  • RMK

    I’m no expert, but you’ll hear a lot of great shooters talk about landing in the same spot you jump from. He could work on this as he jumps forward quite a bit.

  • ForeverIU

    There’s unconventional that’s replicable and unconventional that’s not replicable. I don’t know, I’m no expert, but his shooting mechanics just strike me as needing a lot of work and fine-tuning, which is fine; he seems to be a very disciplined and hard-working player.
