The MSU Billings men’s basketball team has added forward Emmanuel Johnson for the 2014-15 season.

Johnson, of San Antonio, joins the Yellowjackets from Frank Phillips College in Borger, Texas. Johnson averaged 8.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in two seasons at Frank Phillips, and shot 49.5 percent from the field.

“E.J. fits an immediate need in our program,” said MSUB coach Jamie Stevens. “His athleticism and ability to rebound is something we’re looking for. He played in a great junior college league and should adapt well to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference."
