Jordan scores 28 as UCF routs West Florida 115-61
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)—Marcus Jordan scored 16 of his 28 points in the first half and Central Florida routed West Florida 115-61 on Friday night in both teams’ season opener.
Jordan, son of NBA legend and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, made his first four shots of the game from 3-point range.
The 115 points were the most the Knights have scored since the 1992-93 season. It was the 20th highest total in school history. UCF shot 66.7 percent, its fourth-best shooting night in school history.
Keith Clanton, who like Jordan was a Conference USA All-Freshman pick last season, hit his first nine shots and finished with 24 points for the Knights.
Jordan, who received a rousing ovation from the crowd when he checked out of the game with 6:46 to play, made 8 of 11 shots from the field and 5 of 7 from 3-point range.
The Division II Argonauts were led by Mike Lewis with 15 points.
