The 6-foot-7 Johnson, last season's player of the year by The Times, held up a pair of Arizona shoes to let viewers know his school of choice.

 Monday is freedom day for winter transfer athletes who have been sitting out the past month of the season, and there's going to be some big-time impact players in basketball. Brayden Lenius, who moved to West Hills Chaminade from Canada, becomes eligible. He already showed the type of athlete he is in football, emerging as a college prospect at receiver in helping the Eagles win the CIF state championship Division II bowl game. He can jump and dunk with the best, and adding athleticism to the Eagles lineup will only help a team that has four transfer students on its roster.

The play was designed for Kobe Bryant. The Lakers had squandered a 17-point lead over New Jersey and held only a one-point advantage at 88-87 with 10 seconds remaining. Matt Barnes delivered the ball to the team's star. Bryant, coming off of a screen, shot a 26-foot three-pointer, which bounced seven times on the rim before falling through the net, allowing an anxious Staples Center crowd to celebrate instead of reel over what otherwise could have been an inconceivable loss.

 Former Santa Ana Mater Dei basketball player Mario Soto, who transferred to Saddleback Valley Christian, is now seeking a hardship waiver of CIF transfer rules in an attempt to gain immediate eligibility. He did not have a valid change of residency, so gaining a hardship waiver is his last resort to being able to play in his senior season.  It is now under consideration, according to the CIF.
