Union College forward Deante Johnson (SR/Cincinnati, Ohio) scored a season-high 30 points, as he joined the Bulldog 1,000 career point club in a convincing 99-67 victory over Kentucky Christian in NAIA men’s basketball action on Saturday at Robsion Arena.

With the win, Union captured their eighth victory in a row to improve to 17-4 overall on the season. Kentucky Christian fell to 6-16 with the defeat.

In the first half of the victory, the Bulldogs leaped out to a quick 6-0 lead on the heels of three straight Johnson baskets to start the game. Once Union grabbed the lead in the win, they never relinquished it for 40 minutes, as the closest KCU came to the Bulldog lead in the first half was five points.
