The Johnson Jaguars men’s basketball team continued their historic playoff run with a thrilling 64-57 victory over the San Antonio Lanier Voks in the Area round of the playoffs last Thursday.

Johnson (30-6) led 36-20 at halftime before the Voks mounted a determined second half comeback, cutting the lead to 60-57 with :18 seconds to go in the game. But key 4-0 Jaguar run down the stretch, including a critical two-pointer from junior Jordan Harding in the waning seconds, placed the game out of reach. 

The Jags advance to the Region IV-5A Quarterfinals where they’ll play the winner of Boerne Champion/San Antonio Jefferson in the next round. More details to come on when, where and who the Jags will play in the Regional Quarterfinal. Congratulations to Johnson on the historic postseason win.
