Former ASU starter Gordon transfers to Indiana

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Evan Gordon is headed home.

Indiana announced Thursday that the former Arizona State guard, who announced he was leaving the program about two weeks ago, will transfer to Bloomington and enroll in graduate school so he can be eligible immediately next season.


Gordon, an Indianapolis native, is the brother of former Indiana star and NBA guard Eric Gordon. He left the Sun Devils after just one season in which he averaged 10.1 points — the third-highest total on the team — along with 2.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals

Gordon will help fortify an Indiana roster that will look very different next season. Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller declared for the NBA draft, three seniors graduated and Maurice Creek and Remy Abell have announced their intentions to transfer.

Gordon started his career at Liberty University in Virginia before transferring to ASU.
