Vaux's Rysheed Jordan named MVP of Public League A

A day after scoring a game-high 45 points in the Public League boys' basketball championship, Vaux senior guard Rysheed Jordan was named the MVP of Public League Division A on Monday morning.

He also was named to the division's first team for the third-straight season.

Jordan grabbed six rebounds and recorded four steals as Vaux fell on Sunday afternoon to Imhotep, 67-66, in the league final at Temple. Sometime after the season Jordan will commit to UCLA, Temple or St. John's.

Up next for Vaux is the PIAA Class A Playoffs, which start March 8.

Also on Division A's first team: Brandon Austin, Imhotep; Jeremiah Worthem, Math, Civics & Sciences; Hakeem Baxter, Philadelphia Electrical; David Johnson, Communications Tech.
