School Bio: Glory Johnson


When your name is next to Chamique Holdsclaw in the Tennessee record books, you know you’re doing something right. That’s exactly the situation for forward Glory Johnson, who ranks second in program history in rebounding (1115 total boards) and is leading the Volunteers in rebounding for the third consecutive season. Not only is Johnson averaging an impressive 9.3 rebounds in 28.4 minutes per game this season, but she’s averaging a career high 13.3 points per game on an incredibly efficient 57.0 percent shooting.

What the Lynx think

“Glory Johnson is one of the most athletic bigs in college basketball. She runs the floor and finishes around the basket very well. She possesses excellent quickness and jumping ability, has great hands and does a really good job of catching the ball in traffic around the hoop.”
- Jim Petersen, Lynx Assistant Coach

What They're Saying

“Glory Johnson is one of the most physical post players I’ve seen and will close her college career as Tennessee’s second-best career rebounder behind Chamique Holdsclaw. Glory goes hard on the boards, fights for balls in the paint and has a nice touch on layups. She’s also learned how to stay out of foul trouble, something that plagued her early in her career.”
- Beth Rucker, Associated Press - Knoxville

“There are a lot of players with a better skill set, but I have yet to find a player that out-works Johnson in the paint. She has improved her offense a lot in four years and will work hard to improve after college. Johnson is a rebounding beast. Handles the ball ok for a 6-3 post, but needs to improve her shooting from 15 feet in.”
- Mickey Dearstone, Voice of the Lady Vols

"A talented forward who can finish around the basket and rebounds very well."
- Doug Feinberg, Associated Press

“Johnson's ability to rebound and defend will help her make an immediate impact on any WNBA team. However, she's also steadily become a more efficient offensive player and if she continues to diversify the ways in which she score she could be even more impressive as a pro than she was as a college player.”
- Nate Parham,

“Best Athlete, plays hard, maturing control and balance, finisher on the break.”
- Debbie Antonelli, National TV College Basketball Analyst
