As a Junior, Jordan's height spiked to 6'3", which helped kickstart his varsity basketball career on the school's team. His peak performance in this time secured him a basketball scholarship with five different universities, of which he chose the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The NBA describe Michael Jordan as the "greatest basketball player of all time", which explains why he is the longstanding titleholder for highest career regular-season scoring average of 33.45 points per game.
