Judge Allows Eron Gordon To Play

A Marion County (IN) judge has ruled that class of 2016 star Eron Gordon can play for Indianapolis Cathedral, at least for now.

Gordon, a 6'2 guard, was ruled ineligible following a transfer to Cathedral from North Central. A review panel ultimately granted him limited eligibility which would essentially allowed him to play junior varsity basketball until gaining full eligibility on March 7, 365 days from North Central's last game in 2014.

The judge instructed the Indiana State Board of Education's Case Review Panel to look again at whether or not Gordon's case was treated in a manner consistent to other similar waiver applicants. He can play while the panel complete's their review.

Gordon, who is the younger brother Eric Gordon of the New Orleans Pelicans, will be able to play for Cathedral next week when they play in the Indianpolis City Tournament.
