Marcus Jordan scores game-high 19
PEORIA, Ill. -- Michael Jordan has celebrated another
Chicago basketball championship -- his son's.
Marcus Jordan, son of the Bulls' six-time champion, scored a
game-high 19 points yesterday to lead Chicago Whitney Young to a
69-66 victory over Waukegan in the Illinois Class 4A high school
championship at Peoria.
As Marcus Jordan and his teammates celebrated on the court after
the final buzzer, Michael Jordan stood quietly, clapping his hands
with tears in his eyes.
Michael Jordan, who is part-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats,
skipped his team's home loss to Indiana so he could attend his
son's game. Another son, Jeff Jordan, plays basketball for the
University of Illinois.
