The senior guard added to his playoff legend, lifting Vaux to its first Public League final by outlasting Martin Luther King, 71-68, in overtime.
Vaux (19-7), The Inquirer's fourth-ranked team, will play Imhotep Charter in Sunday's final at Temple.
"It's going to be a big event," Jordan said. "We're doing it for everybody that ever went [to Vaux]."
The school district will close Vaux in June.
Jordan scored 28 points and had five rebounds, five assists, and three steals. He shot 10 for 20 from the floor and 9 for 13 from the line, including two free throws with 6.2 seconds left to put Vaux ahead by three.
"I knew once I got the ball in my hands I was going to finish the game," Jordan said.
Jordan, whose college decision is down to Temple, St. John's, or UCLA, scored three points in the final 11 seconds Saturday to stun Math, Civics & Sciences in the quarterfinals.
Thursday, he scored only three points in the third quarter as he played with three fouls. But he banked in a three-pointer over Raquan Brown-Johnson to start his fourth, and scored 13 in the final quarter and extra session.
