San Jose Archbishop Mitty’s super senior Aaron Gordon missed a last-second desperation 3-pointer as the Monarchs lost to the Tigers 56 – 53 in overtime.
Mitty (2 – 1) had the lead for most of the game in regulation, but a late surge by the Tigers (11 – 1) evened up the score at 50 apiece after four quarters.
Gordon, the 7th-ranked player from the class of 2013 according to ESPN, led the Monarchs with 14 points, despite constant double teams. The senior from the two-time defending California Div. II State Champion Monarchs remains uncommitted with his college choice, with the finalists being Washington, Arizona, and Kentucky. Gordon will decide during the spring signing period.
Travis’ twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison, both Kentucky commits, led with 26 and 10 points, respectively.
Aaron Harrison, ESPN’s 5th ranked player for 2013, suffered leg cramps late in the game, but managed to score a layup and added two free throws to provide the winning margin.
Andrew Harrison, ESPN’s 3rd ranked player for 2013, suffered through the game with a pulled hamstring. Kentucky head coach John Calipari was in attendance at the game which was nationally televised on ESPN.
