Marcus Jordan to Leave UCF, Won’t Play Senior Season

Marcus Jordan, the youngest son of Michael Jordan, has decided not to play at Central Florida next season. Jordan was second on the Knights in scoring as a junior, averaging 13.7 points per game. Via the Orlando Sentinel: “Jordan is going to take classes at the university, but he won’t be playing for the Knights. The NCAA Committee on Infractions hit the men’s basketball program with a one-year postseason ban. The school is not appealing the basketball ban, which means UCF seniors are free to transfer and play immediately for other teams eligible for the postseason. Jordan was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing officers in Omaha, Neb., July 1. He was in the city to watch the Olympic swimming trials. UCF coach Donnie Jones said he tried reaching Jordan by phone after the NCAA announced the basketball postseason ban, but Jordan had not responded to Jones’ messages within 24 hours. Jordan was part of some of the biggest wins in school history, including upsets of Florida and Memphis. However, he struggled during the 2011-12 season as he faced more aggressive defensive pressure.”

    Good that he’s staying in school. His dad did enough to where another Jordan never has to pick up a basketball. The Jordan legacy is set.

    Why would a kid going into his senior year of college basketball quit? Even if the team can’t play in the tournament, so what… you play, right? What am I missing here?

    why would a kid going into his senior year of college basketball quit? 1) theres more to life than basketball. 2) who wants to compete all year if a post season cant be reached 3) college basketball is alot of work why not focus on studies, only so many kids make a living through basketball
