Pioneer alum Matt Johnson sets college scoring record with game-winning 3-pointer

By Pete Cunningham

Matt Johnson, a 2008 Pioneer High School graduate, set a University of Chicago and University Athletic Association single-game scoring record with 49 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer on Friday night in a 103-102 upset win over Emory University, the No. 4 ranked team in Division III.

Johnson also made a school record-tying eight 3-pointers in the game. Johnson tied the previous record of 44 points in one game just five days earlier, in a 97-89 overtime loss to Brandeis University.
