Beloit Turner boys basketball coach Ken Watkins said Jordan Majeed is one of the best-kept secrets in the state.

After the junior’s monster outing Friday, the secret is probably out.

Majeed erupted for 43 points, carrying the Trojans to a 78-63 Rock Valley Conference win over McFarland.

“We’ve been waiting for a breakout game like this,” Watkins said of Majeed. “He’s been working his tail off.”

Both teams entered the game 5-3 and tied for third place. Turner (7-4, 6-3 RVC) snapped a two-game losing streak, while McFarland (8-4, 5-4 RVC) has dropped back-to-back games for the first time this season.

Majeed’s career night helped the Trojans shake off Tuesday’s loss to league-leading East Troy. He made 14 field goals and was 14 of 17 at the free-throw line.

“Jordan has been pressing hard all year,” Watkins said. “He’s a kid who after practices is going over to the Y or to the college and getting in more shooting.”

Steve Dillard added 16 points for Turner, which pulled away after leading 36-35 at halftime.

Trevon Chislom led the Spartans with 30 points.
