Hoops: Former Berean Christian guard Johnny Lantz transfers to Palm Beach Atlantic 

By Jeff Greer

Former Berean Christian standout Johnny Lantz will play for Palm Beach Atlantic this winter, PBAU announced Wednesday. Lantz spent his freshman year at Ave Maria, a small college near Immokalee.

Lantz, a 6-3 guard, averaged 1.6 points in 16 appearances for Ave Maria last season. As a junior at Berean Christian, Lantz made the Post 2009 Small Schools All-Area team. He’s known for his sharpshooting ability.

“Johnny is a young man that is an asset to any program,” PBAU coach Terry Primm said. “His shooting ability will be a valuable asset to our program.”
