Gordon (2.05 meters, 22 years old) arrives from the University of New Mexico, for whom he averaged 13.7 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1 block over 35 games last season. He helped the Lobos win the Mountain West Conference championship, was named MVP of the MWC tournament and as a first-team all-conference selection.
