The Princeton Alum Who Beat Michael Jordan in 1 on 1

Chris Ballard has a great piece in this week's Sports Illustrated about the exclusive (read: expensive, at a $15,000 matriculation fee) fantasy camp that Michael Jordan used to run and, in particular, a game of make it/take it one on one (to 3 baskets) where, several years ago, to the astonishment of those in attendance, including Coach K, a not even 6 foot former Princeton basketball captain named John Rogers beat one of the greatest players of all time. Click here and read all about it.

Ballard describes Jordan as the most competitive person on the planet. Rogers, who founded the Ariel Mutual Funds Group, is up there, too.

How did he beat MJ? Well, he clearly remembered one of the fundamental principles that his former coach, Pete Carril, taught him -- Play to Win.
