Six-foot-one Justin Hohn had himself another great season for the Titans. He broke several school records in his junior season.
Hohn helped lead Tea Area back to the state tournament and earn a second place finish after winning it last year. After his second straight season in the starting lineup, he’s molded himself into a huge piece of the Titans offense.
He logged over 550 minutes this past season which was most on the team and was one of three in the starting lineup that rarely came out of the game.
Hohn ranked among the top in several different categories this past season, which made him a very versatile player. He led the team in steals, tied for second in scoring, led the team in assists and blocks, also was the second highest rebounder.
At his size, it could be surprising to be leading the team in blocks, but Hohn has some jump to his step. He also has great timing when it comes to attempting the block, and was good at helping against a big in the post. Hohn also used his athleticism to grab about 4.4 rebounds a game.
Hohn was really good at breaking down his defender and getting to the basket. He wasn’t afraid to go against the bigger defender and cause the foul. During the regular season, he was very efficient from the charity stripe going 37-of-52 for 71 percent.
At the state tournament in Rapid City, Hohn averaged about 15.7 points on 45 percent shooting from the field. He grabbed about 3.3 boards a game, 5.3 assists and had 3.3 steals.
He was selected to be on the all-tournament team for his performance in the three games.
By The Numbers
272: Points scored this past season which was one point behind Kade Stearns for second on the team. It was an average of 10.2 points a game.
79: Steals he had over the course of the season which was a new season school record.
156: Assists he gave out this past season which was also a new season school record.
The Titans only lose one starter for the second straight season and will look to get to their third straight state title game.
For the summer, he plans on playing with the Pentagon Schoolers. He wants to improve the efficiency of his game and he will have a great mentor in Kirk Hinrich to help with that.
