High School Basketball: Mitty Claims NorCal Open Division Title

Aaron Gordon is going to make some college coach really happy.

The uncommitted senior who is ranked the fourth best high school prospect in the nation put on a show at Sleep Train Arena on Saturday night as San Jose’s Archbishop Mitty Monarchs cruised to a 70-50 victory against the Sheldon Huskies to take the NorCal Open Division crown.

Gordon finished with 29 points and 22 rebounds, shooting 14/24 from the field.

“They have a lot of D-I players, but they just don’t have enough height; that’s what it came down to,” Gordon said when asked to explain his success. “I was able to make shots over them.”

However, Mitty’s work is not complete, as they will take on Mater Dei in the state Open Division title game next week, bidding for their third consecutive state title.
