The Pac-12 Freshman of the Year averaged 12.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks per game this season for the Wildcats (33-5), who lost to Wisconsin by one point in overtime of the West Region final in this year's NCAA Tournament.

The 6-foot-9, 225-pound Gordon, who shot 49.5 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from three-point range, is expected to be a lottery pick.
