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