Aaron Gordon provides a taste of what Arizona fans can’t wait to see and Pac-12 foes dread

The Dagger

It should be fun watching Arizona signee Aaron Gordon next year in Tucson. The 6-foot-8 forward showed why he was so widely coveted in recruiting when he flashed some amazing athleticism on this wicked ally-oop at the USA Basketball U19 World Championship training camp this week.

Gordon was the No. 3 overall player in rankings for the incoming freshmen class. He's expected to be making his way to the NBA at this time next year and some see him as a favorite for national Freshman of the Year awards because of his versatility and explosiveness.
