Eron Gordon

North Central (Indianapolis) freshman Eron Gordon, the highly-touted younger brother of New Orleans Hornet guard Eric Gordon, poured in 31 points in his high school debut Wednesday night.

According to Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star, Gordon poured in 20 second-half points but it wasn't enough as his Panthers fell to Pike (Indianapolis), 82-77.

Gordon, a 6-foot-2 guard, already sports an offer from the Indiana Hoosiers (where his brother spent the 2007-08 season) and is regarded as one of the top 2016 talents in the country.

Wednesday's game was a showdown between two of the top programs in Indianapolis and Gordon was facing three future Division I guards in Pike's Zavier Turner (Ball State), Jordan Pickett (Loyola) and TaiShaun Johnson.

"Thirty one points?" Pickett said to the Star. "Golly. He's a great player and he's going to be even better. Thirty one? That's insane. We have three of the top guards in the state and he put 31 on us. Props to him."
