Tweet link: Evan Gordon leaving Arizona State

Gordon’s departure means ASU has lost two of its top three scorers from last season. Carrick Felix (14.6) graduated and now Gordon (10.1), who was also a solid defender. Jitterbug scorer Jahii Carson (18.5 ppg.) will be back, as is center Jordan Bachynski and forward Jonathan Gilling.

Video and quotes: C.J. Wilcox, Andrew Andrews and Aziz N’Diaye postgame Arizona State

Jr., C.J. Wilcox

On his confidence when other guys are stepping up with scoring:

“It helps and takes a lot of pressure off me. It’s tough to get in the rhythm in your first year and it takes a while to get into it. When they get into that rhythm, you’re not going to focus on me as much. It’s good, as far as a team standpoint. It’s hard to just key on everybody. You got
