Aaron Gordon's Mitty High School Comes Up Short In Title Game

Aaron Gordon had a great year of high school basketball, but it ended on a disappointing note.

His Mitty High School team lost to Mater Dei 50 to 45.

“I hate it,” Gordon said. “I can’t stand it. To end a career with a loss…”

Gordon was disappointed, but he should not let it get him down. He announced earlier this month that he would declare his college decision on April 3rd at the McDonald’s All American game. It will be at the United Center, and I plan to be in attendance.

His head coach was proud of his performance as well, and Gordon’s budding basketball career has a bright future even if the present feels bad for the forward.

“Aaron has nothing to be ashamed of,” Mitty coach Tim Kennedy said. “He left it all on the court. If anyone, I feel responsible because I didn’t put us in good position to score. We held to 50 which was our goal, we just didn’t score enough. That said, Mater Dei played great defense. Give them credit.”

Looking forward to Gordon’s decision, and for loyal readers keep an eye out in the next day or so for some soon to be released Gatorade commercial as well as a possible interview later on. This will be a fun one y’all so keep an eye out.
