WACO, TEXAS- The Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s basketball program had the unique privilege the past few days to visit Waco, Texas and compete against the No. 10-ranked Lady Bears of Baylor University while taking in the sights of the Lonestar State. One of the other unique features of the trip featured a reunion of sorts for assistant coach Boderick Johnson and his daughter, Niya Johnson who is a sophomore guard on for the Lady Bears.
Coach Johnson and his talented daughter were featured in a news report by 254sports.com in a feature called; Behind the Green & Gold: The Johnsons.
The Johnson duo were honored by the over 6,000 fans on hand for the exhibition game with a pregame ceremony that saw the father-daughter pair embrace at mid-court before the start of the game.
PBA is back home on Saturday, Nov. 1st for another exhibition contest as they will take on Davenport (Mich.) University at the Rubin Arena beginning with a first tip of 2 pm.
