While the Hoosiers only mustered .85 points per possession against the Spartans in their blowout loss on Friday night, Robert Johnson had a strong offensive performance.

Johnson scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting. The senior did a nice job of evading Michigan State’s strong shotblocking at the rim while also finding creative ways to score from the mid-range and from distance.

We’ll take a look at four of his scores in the latest edition of Film Session:

But he’s got just enough of a step on all of them to get the shot up without interference for the score:

Nice work by Johnson to push past the defense in semi-transition for the score here.
