RUSTON - Louisiana Tech forward Adrienne Johnson ranks 12th in the country in scoring at 22.0 points per game in the latest statistical rankings released by the NCAA on Monday.

Johnson, a 6-foot-1 senior, has scored 132 points in six games for the Lady Techsters, including four 20-plus point performances.

The two-time first team all-Western Athletic Conference performer became the first player in program history to open the year with four straight games of 20-plus points as she netted 25 vs. Prairie View, 26 vs. Western Kentucky, 23 vs. UALR and 26 vs. Houston.

Johnson's streak was snapped when she scored only 19 in a loss at Missouri State in Tech's fifth game of the season.

The Franklin, Louisiana native is shooting 51 percent from the field, 33 percent (4-12) from the three-point line and 81 percent (31-37) from the free throw line during the season.

Johnson leads the Western Athletic Conference in scoring, edging Nevada's Tahnee Robinson who is ranked 14th in the country at 21.4 points per contest.

Delaware's Elena Delle Donne, who originally signed with UConn out of high school, leads the country in scoring, averaging 26.2 points per contest.

Johnson and the Lady Techsters will return to action Sunday when they host Southern at 2 p.m.
