Morrison said the original idea for the Jumpman Invitational actually came from Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione.

“Joe was the catalyst,” said Morrison, who also previously served as the president of the Carolina Panthers during Jerry Richardson’s ownership of the team. “Joe and I have been friends for a long time. In a conversation from over two years ago, he said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if we could get the first four (football and basketball) Jordan Brand schools together for a doubleheader basketball event?’ We started getting more serious about it in the summer of 2019. Everyone embraced the concept, we found a lot of great partners and here we are.”

I love this tournament idea. With the other Jordan Brand schools, this could create a really nice, competitive annual tournament. Much better than most of the invitational holiday tournaments out there. Hope it becomes a permanent event.

Think of the schools: UCLA, Georgetown, Marquette, Houston, Michigan, Florida, OU, SDSU, UNC. Enough schools to alter the four participants each year. It would be a strong enough field to really boost OOC scheduling, and great for recruiting. Direct flight for most fans to Charlotte via AA.

Great idea by Joe C.
