Basketball: Jordan Mathews in all-star game

Cal signee Jordan Mathews of Santa Monica High will play in the inaugural West Coast All-Star Classic, May 11 at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash.

Mathews, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, averaged 28 points per game this season, leading his team into the California Division I state finals.

Twenty-two top West Coast high school seniors will participate in the event, which also will include a dunk contest and 3-point competition the night before at Rainier Beach HS in Seattle.

Other participants include Saint Mary’s-bound Calvin Hermanson of Lake Oswego, Ore., Arizona signee Elliott Pitts of De La Salle HS and Santa Clara signees Gabe Beeler of Antelope-Lancaster and Marquis Davis of Rainier Beach-Seattle.

    My local b-ball insider, Roy Joshua, talked to Ed Gordon a couple weekends ago. Ed is Aaron Gordon’s father.

    Apparently Aaron has Arizona, Washington, and Kentucky (and one other Pac 12 team he couldn’t recall) on his short list. No mention of Cal. 🙁

    Aaron says he will announce on April 3.
