The Summer Pennsylvanian

In his first-ever professional game in Philadelphia, Penn alum and Philadelphia Force point guard Michael Jordan fed the ball to his teammates -- a lot.

Jordan dished out 13 assists in the Force's 100-87 win over the Washington Justice at the Community College of Philadelphia Tuesday night.

The game was nearly over before it started, as the Force jumped out to a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter, and kept the Justice trailing by at least ten points the rest of the way.

That's not to say that the Washington team gave up. After the Force led by as much as 27, the Justice pulled to witihin 12 with 6:00 left in the fourth before the Force finally put them away.

"Basketball's a game of runs," Jordan said. "[Washington] made a run at a key point in the game, and Coach [Howard Evans] got the starters back in, and we were able to hold them off."

I think so, I think we still have to get a few of the kinks out and start playing together more, but I think we'll be alright.

I think we have a lot of talent, we just got to get it together.

I'm going to try out for that team, sign in on Thursday for that. I think we start two-a-days on Friday.

Hopefully I'll make that team and go play in Boston.
