No representatives from Temple, UCLA, or St. John's were spotted at Southern during Saturday night's Public League Class A championship game. But the three finalists for Rysheed Jordan's services will no doubt hear about his last-minute heroics.
With 0.1 second remaining, after missing his first attempt from the free-throw line, the prized recruit calmly buried the second to give Roberts Vaux a 62-61, come-from-behind victory over stunned Math, Civics, and Sciences.
With 10.7 seconds to go, the 6-foot-3 phenom hit two foul shots to forge a 61-61 tie. That was followed by his steal in front of the MC&S bench. After a timeout, after he hurried the ball past midcourt and down the lane, he was fouled.
