DONGXIANG, China — University of Iowa senior Morgan Johnson, and the NetScouts Basketball United States All-Stars, have captured the `Four Nations’ tournament title with a 7-2 record. Johnson and the United States team defeated China, 66-61, in the final game. Johnson registered two points, four rebounds, two blocks and a steal in the title-clinching victory.

“It has been a wonderful experience, both professionally as a player, and culturally,” said Johnson. “I have enjoyed getting to know these girls, and the opportunity to represent the United States is just amazing.”

Johnson, along with nine other NCAA Division I seniors, traveled to China for 15 days to play against other national teams. Australia and China tied for second at 5-4, and Brazil finished fourth with a 1-8 mark.

Johnson started all 34 games this season and was a second team All-Big Ten selection and a Capital One Academic All-District pick. She ranked inside the top 10 in six different Big Ten statistical categories while leading Iowa in scoring (14.4) and rebounding (7.5).

Johnson finished her career as Iowa’s all-time leading shot blocker (293), holds the school record for career games played and consecutive games played (130), career starts (129), ranks fourth in career rebounds (886) and ninth in career scoring (1,582).
