Jayce Johnson continues his basketball career abroad – Marquette Wire

Jayce Johnson, a former Marquette center, is preparing to embark on a new basketball journey. He recently announced on social media that he will be traveling abroad to Romania where he will play professionally for BC CSU Sibiu.

The team competes in a league called “Liga Națională”, which is the leading basketball league in Romania with 24 teams.

Johnson transferred to Marquette after originally playing for the University of Utah. He only played one season for MU, but became the team’s second big man behind Theo John and after midseason departure of Ed Morrow.

According to the team’s press release, Johnson is originally from Romania with his ancestors hailing from Alma.

“I am delighted to play for BC CSU Sibiu and happy to be a part of the yellow-blue family,” Johnson said in a statement. “It is an honor for me to be able to continue my career in Sibiu and I look forward to meeting my coach and my teammates.”

In the press release, team head coach Dan Fleșeriu said Johnson had “graduated from a very good program in the United States”. He also said Johnson will give the team strength and consistency in the paint.

Johnson is set to continue his career abroad after finishing the 2019-20 basketball season as a Golden Eagle. Last season, he averaged 3.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. Head coach Steve Wojciechowski praised his offensive rebound this season.
