SFCC’s Jordan signs with Adelphi University
SFCC sophomore forward Travis Jordan will continue his academic and collegiate basketball career a little closer to home.
The Brooklyn, N.Y., native plans to attend Adelphi University, a NCAA Division II school in Garden City, N.Y., next year.
“I chose Adelphi because I think being there will set me up for success in life after basketball,” said Jordan. “I want to be an FBI agent and the coach there is a retired New York City lieutenant. He also worked for the FBI. I think that is the gateway to get to where I want to be.”
Jordan helped his team to a Region XVI tournament championship game appearance as a sophomore. He averaged 6.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per contest.
“Travis will be a very talented player at the next level,” said Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Thomas. “He definitely improved from the minute he set foot on campus until now. His defensive ability was lacking as a freshman. He really figured things out and was very coachable. He was our best defensive player this year.”
As a freshman, Jordan shot 41.5 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the three-point line. He played in all 31 games for the Roadrunners.
“In my opinion, he is what SFCC is all about,” said Thomas. “Academically, he’s done a great job and is on track to graduate this year. I wish him nothing but good things in the future.”
