A Defining Moment

University of San Diego sophomore point guard Trumaine Johnson acknowledges his stubbornness.

"I'm hard-headed," Johnson told VoiceofSanDiego.org with a grin. "Anybody will tell you that."

USD coach Bill Grier says the trait frustrates him and his staff as they try to coach the Houston street ball out of Johnson to transition him into what he has rapidly become this season -- one of the most explosive point guards in the West Coast Conference, the VoiceofSanDiego.org reported.

Although Johnson admits to being hard-headed, he's most definitely not thick-headed.

If he was, the Houston street ball might have taken over in the final tense moments of USD's 55-50 win at Santa Clara on Jan. 11 when Santa Clara guard Perry Petty swung an elbow at Johnson's head.
