ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A fight over the shoes Michael Jordan's son will wear at the University of Central Florida has cost the school any future sponsorship with adidas.
In an e-mail to The Associated Press, adidas spokeswoman Andrea
Corso says the school "has chosen not to deliver on their contractual commitment to adidas," prompting the company not to continue its relationship with the school moving forward.
Freshman guard Marcus Jordan wore a pair of white Air Jordans during UCF's exhibition game against Saint Leo on Wednesday night, the Orlando Sentinel reported on its Web site.
UCF is in the final year of a five-year contract with adidas. A school spokesman did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
