The Knights outscored Jordan 17-14 in the opening quarter, led by Ricky Council, who finished with 22 points on the night. Jordan tied the game up at 31-31 going into halftime though.

Both teams played even in the third quarter, and Jordan edged the Knights in the fourth, 16-14, to claim the victory.

Council's 22 points was a game high, but even combined with a 17 point performance from Kentrell Barkley and a 10-point game from Kourtney Farrow, it wasn't enough to knock off the Falcons.

Darien Ortiz led Jordan with 13 points, while Jared Hendryx added 11.

Jordan's next game will be on Friday at Southern Durham. Northern Durham will host Riverside on Friday night.
