The Arena Pulse '11-12 Season Preview: Nation's Top 5 Returning Scorers
No. 2- Orlando Johnson, Sr. (UC-Santa Barbara)- 21.1 ppg in 2010-2011

Orlando Johnson declared for the 2011 NBA Draft after the Gauchos made an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Johnson returns for his senior season, giving UC-Santa Barbara another opportunity to threaten for a NCAA Tournament bid in 2011-2012. After averaging 21.1 points per game last season, Johnson has become an elite scorer for the Gauchos in each of the past two seasons. After spending his freshman year at Loyola Marymount, Johnson sat out the 2008-09 season before becoming eligible in 09-10. With one run remaining, Johnson hopes this upcoming season is even better than a year ago.
