At half-time of Indiana’s 83-79 win, camera crews and national media (you’ll read stories on this game from ESPN’s Pat Forde, CBS columnist Greg Doyel, Fox’s Jeff Goodman, Chicago Sun-Times/Around the Horn star Jay Mariotti and of course Doug Wilson of the Bloomington Herald-Times), descended on Eric Gordon Sr. to interview him.
I didn’t get any of this stuff in tomorrow’s paper due to time and space restraints, but here’s a general overview.
Gordon Sr., who played basketball at Liberty University and was basically Eric’s spokesman during his recruitment, said it didn’t bother him to hear fans boo his son.
“He’s got a long basketball career ahead of him and he’s been booed before and it will probably happen again,” Gordon Sr. said.
When asked if this would be Eric’s only trip to this Assembly Hall — really the question was, Will Eric jump to the NBA? — Gordon Sr. wouldn’t say.
“I don’t know,” he said. “We’ll just have to wait to see how this season goes.”
He could tell that his son was shaken, though.
“If he relaxes and just plays in the second half he’ll be fine,” he said. And of course that happened.
Finally, Gordon said he didn’t visit with the Illinois assistant coaches during his visit.
“There’s no need to,” he said. “I talk to the Indiana coaches now.”
