O'Connell Basketball Isn't Only Winning....They're Twinning

Derek Martin is becoming weary of falling just a little short. The past four years his O’Connell College Preparatory Buccaneers have made it to the playoffs, but have yet to make it to state. This season, at 24 and 6, Martin feels like it’s their time

His roster is stacked with 3 returning TAPPS all state players, a few sharpshooters and…..a couple of jokesters.

Twin brothers, Khristian and Khristopher Johnson, are a couple of free spirited athletes that always keep smiles on the faces of everyone around them

When it’s game time, however, the twins know how to flip the switch. The jokes end and the hooping begins. Both have been major parts of the Buccaneers success since they were freshmen.

As with most twins, the Johnson brothers do everything together. From athletics to doing homework together. And on the court, if a game is in doubt, the boys even call their own play.
