RALEIGH, N.C. – As coveted as Air Jordans are for people all over the world — as made clear by the unreal lines at shoe stores on release day — Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, N.C.) forward Harry Giles III dished on a well-known rule amongst elite high school hoopers: No J’s on the hardwood.

“Can’t do that,” said Giles, who scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the Trojans’ 72-56 victory against Carlisle (Axton, Va.) at the High School OT Holiday Invitational Saturday night.

Giles was one of the lucky ones who picked up a pair of the all-white patterned leather Jordan XI Retros; his were an early Christmas present on Dec. 20.

The Trojans, ranked No. 2 in the USA Today HSS Super 25, will face Word of God Academy (Raleigh, N.C.) Monday at 6:50 p.m. in the John Wall bracket semis.

There’s no real “why” to the rule; one could speculate that the hefty price tag ($200) factors in.

Whatever the reason, Giles said the consensus is clear.

“They’re too fresh,” said Giles, who is ranked No. 3 overall in the ESPN 60. “Plus, you can’t overwear them; only on special occasions!”
