Amani Johnson, the former WPIAL scoring champion from East Allegheny, was unanimously voted the top freshman basketball player in her college team’s conference.

The 5-foot-6 guard at Kennesaw State was named the Atlantic Sun Conference Freshman of the Year.

Johnson, who scored 2,345 points in high school, was named ASUN Freshman of the Week six times this season, a conference record. She averaged a freshman-best 9.6 points and added 4.4 assists per game. She also logged 37.58 minutes, which led the conference.

Johnson was second in the ASUN in steals with 68.

Kennesaw (8-21), which is coached by former Pitt coach Agnus Berenato, has produced three consecutive freshmen of the year in the conference. The others were Carlotta Gianolla (2016-17) and Kamiyah Street (2017-18).

Kennesaw opens the conference tournament 7 p.m. Friday against Stetson in Deland, Fla.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
