In three seasons, Eric Gordon has gone from a man among boys to a boy among men. “Look how fresh he is!” screamed one of Gordon’s NBA teammates. “He got his draft suit on!” The former Hoosier wasn’t wearing the cream blazer he donned on draft night when he was selected seventh overall by the Los Angeles Clippers, but he was unusually dressed up.A herd of local reporters waited to interview Gordon as he changed meticulously following his hometown pro debut.

The Hoosiers (5-13, 0-6) dropped their ninth game in a row, this one against Minnesota 67-63.

Stepfather became part of recruit’s success
