The Johnson boys basketball team didn’t let a bad start derail its region opener. The Knights left the first quarter of Friday’s game against Stephens County with a surprising two-point deficit, but shrugged it off and still won big with a 77-38 rout of the Indians in the first Region 8-AAAA game for both teams. The defending region champions trailed 14-12 at the first buzzer, struggling to find the net — a rare form for a team known for its high-scoring contests.
