Johnson finished her career with the Black and Gold as the leader in career starts with 129 and the all-time leading shot blocker with 293, and she is fourth in career rebounds with 886. 

The team will face national squads from Brazil, China, and Australia. Johnson’s teammates will include Northern Iowa’s Jacqui Kalin, Green Bay’s Adrian Ritchie and Stephanie Sension, Gonzaga’s Taelor Karr, Illinois State’s Jamie Russell,  Lauren Oosdyke from Northern Colorado, Purdue’s Sam Ostarello, Evansville’s Samantha Heck, and Michigan’s Kate Thompson.
