Surprise! Mitty’s Drew Gordon is back

As if Archbishop Mitty wasn’t already a formidable foe for Hayward in the Division II NorCal semis, the Monarchs saw the return of UCLA-bound Drew Gordon tonight in a 20-point win against Shasta.

His season was supposedly over after breaking his right foot in January, but Gordon played eight minutes tonight, scoring 12 points.

Mitty was undefeated when Gordon went down and ranked as high as No. 6 in the nation. The Monarchs have lost just one game (Riordan) without him as they have rode Saint Mary’s bound Collin Chiverton to the WCAL and CCS D-II titles.

Here’s to having Mitty and McClymonds playing a “pick-up game” when the season is over!
