Willis Wilson’s Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders picked up a solid road victory Sunday afternoon, as they beat defending Atlantic 10 champion Saint Louis 62-56. Junior guard John Jordan led the way offensively, scoring 13 points to go along with three assists and three steals. The 5-foot-10 Jordan also provided the highlight of the game, going baseline for the dunk over SLU’s Miles Reynolds.
According to the announces Jordan has a standing vertical of 38 inches, and with a running start he approaches 50 inches. Give Reynolds credit for attempting to make the proper help side rotation. But given how high Jordan jumped, he very well could have cleared Reynolds had the SLU guard made it directly in front of him.
