Rysheed Jordan Scores Career-High 25 in St. John’s Victory, School Doesn’t Make Him Available to Media (Again)
NEW YORK — Rysheed Jordan went off for a career-high 25 points in St. John’s 84-66 blowout of Creighton on Saturday at Madison Square Garden, draining 6-of-8 from beyond the arc in a game the Johnnies simply had to win to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive.
But once again, the school did not make the 6-foot-4 sophomore guard available to the media.
During his two-year tenure at the Queens school, Jordan has yet to address the media, as per school policy.
Again, Jordan is a sophomore considered a potential pro prospect and he has never spoken to the media.
“It’s less about his numbers,” St. John’s coach Steve Lavin said. “If he had a triple-double I wouldn’t be more inclined to make him available to the media. It’s more a judgment on my part that it’s important he focuses all of his energies on basketball and his academics.”
