SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -When Syracuse star Wes Johnson hit the court hard midway through the first half on Tuesday night against Providence, a hush came over the crowd at the Carrier Dome.
Johnson flipped and crashed hard when fouled by Brian McKenzie while trying to convert a lob pass. He remained motionless for a few seconds, then got up and slowly walked to the bench with a slight grimace.
After a media timeout, Johnson, averaging a team-leading 17 points for the third-ranked Orange, returned, made one of two free throws, and stayed in the game, playing all but one minute of the half.
Johnson started the second half but played only 3 minutes, watching what turned into an 85-68 rout from the bench. He said afterward he was feeling some pain in his left leg, but doesn't expected to miss any games.
