Charles C. Jordan (born January 31, 1954) is an American former professional basketball player.[1] He played for one season in the American Basketball Association for the Indiana Pacers.[1] He then spent the remainder of his career playing in international leagues, including stops in France and Italy.[2]

Jordan did not get to play his senior year at Canisius because the NCAA declared both he and Larry Fogle ineligible for having received "improper financial aid" sometime during his career at the school.[3]

Jordan's younger brother, C.J., played college basketball for the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns.[4]

Basketball

Basketball

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender's hoop (a basket 18 inches in diameter mounted 10 feet high to a backboard at each end of the court, while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one, two or three one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play is mandated.
