The Archbishop Mitty basketball team has been challenged on a number of occasions this season. But having one of the best players in the nation in 6-foot-8 senior Aaron Gordon has proved to be a trump card time and time again.
Gordon went off for 28 points and 26 rebounds Wednesday night as the Monarchs fought off an upset bid by Archbishop Riordan and came from behind in the fourth quarter to pull out a 59-51 victory in the Central Coast Section Open Division semifinals at Independence High.
“Another day at the office,” Mitty coach Tim Kennedy said. “Having him around gets you spoiled.”
