Dee named Mid-Major All-American
April 11, 2012
USD freshman guard Johnny Dee received some good news when it was recently announced that he was selected to the CollegeInsider.com 2012 Mid-Major Freshmen All-America Team. Dee, who earned two separate All-West Coast Conference honors this past season, is one of 25 players from across the nation to be honored. Rather than selecting a first, second, third team and honorable mentions; the Mid-Major Freshmen All-America squad is just one team.
He was one of six WCC players to be named to the All-WCC Honorable Mention team, and was one of five WCC freshmen named to the All-WCC Freshman Team. Dee, who led the USD Toreros (13-18, 6-8 WCC) in scoring this season with his 13.7 points per game average, ranked first in the WCC in three-pointers made per game (2.5) and was third in three-point accuracy (.422).
For the season Dee started 30-of-31 games and averaged a team-best 29.6 minutes per contest. He converted 43.2% from the field (143-331), 42.2% from beyond the three-point arc (79-187) and 85.9% from the free throw line (61-71). He reached double figure scoring in 21 games including eight games of 22 or more points. He scored a season-best 30 points against Pepperdine in the first round of the WCC Basketball Championships, and also set a new USD Division I scoring mark for freshmen with his current 426 points. For sixteen WCC contests he also averaged a team-best 13.3 points per game.
