Johnson plans to compete if the event occurs.

NCAA Basketball: San Diego State at Nevada David Calvert-USA TODAY Sports

Nevada guard Jazz Johnson was named a member of the Mountain West team in the 3X3U National Championship, while was scheduled from April 3-5 in Atlanta, Ga.

Of course, as a result of COVID-19 outbreak, the event was suspended. However, the event could potentially be rescheduled for a later date.

Johnson, earning second-team All-Mountain West honors, averaged 15.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and two assists per game. He made the second-most 3-pointers in the conference (91) and the most 3-pointers made per game (3.1) — ranking in the Top-30 nationally in both categories. His 41.7 3-point percentage sat atop the conference in qualified players — 17th-best in the nation.

The 5-foot-10 sharpshooter hit a three in all 29 games he played in. He hit three-plus 3-pointers in 21 games and four-plus in nine games. At home versus Boise State, Johnson scored a career-high 34 points with a career-high eight 3-pointers. His eight threes tied the second-most in a game at Nevada and the second-most by any player in the Mountain West this season (New Williams hit 10 versus San Jose State).

In his collegiate career, he scored 1,563 points and made 256 3-pointers in 127 games. His career average is 12.3 points per game contest.

Sam Merrill (Utah State), Justinian Jessup (Boise State) and Nico Carvacho (Colorado State) were the other three Mountain West members to make the team.
