High Five: Jeffrey Jordan
A deal has been reached for ESPN to televise a game, likely in February, between Michael Jordan's son's team -- Wilmette (Ill.) Loyola Academy -- and Illinois-bound Eddie Gordon's North Central High. The 6-2' junior shooting guard reportedly received interest from Illinois, Oklahoma State and several mid-major schools.
Low Five: Amanda Belichick
The daughter of the Patriots coach is a lacrosse player at Wesleyan, her dad's alma mater. She told a Connecticut newspaper that the Pats are actually not her favorite team. "I love the Giants," said the junior, who scored a goal in Saturday's 18-6 loss to Middlebury. She explained that she "made a choice a long time ago that I would always fall back on (the Giants) no matter who my dad was with."
High Five: Jeff Samardzija
For Jeff Samardzija Night on Friday at Eck Stadium, a record 3,507 tickets were sold for Notre Dame's baseball game against Rutgers. After the festivities, which included a first pitch ceremony involving Charlie Weis and Brady Quinn, the lanky 6-5 right-hander, who doubles as an All-America wide receiver, gave up three runs in 7 1/3 innings and ran his record to 6-1, propelling the 16th-ranked Irish to their school-record 20th straight win.
Low Five: Jai Lewis
The former George Mason power forward, who earned the nickname "Can't Be Stopped" while playing football at Aberdeen (Md.) High, is altering his diet in his quest to play tight end and follow in the footsteps of Antonio Gates, who played basketball but not football at Kent State before moving on to NFL stardom. Lewis has supposedly sworn off tacos and cheeseburgers in favor of a half dozen small, healthy meals a day telling The New York Times, "I got it going with a banana and a pear," he said.
