UMass guard Gordon says coming out let him focus on game

NEW YORK (AP) Massachusetts guard Derrick Gordon became a better basketball player and a better teammate this season, and he credits both to having the courage to play as an openly gay man.

Gordon's first season since coming out likely ended Thursday in the second round of the Atlantic 10 tournament at Barclays Center.

The junior guard scored seven points and had five rebounds as the Minutemen (17-15), who are still holding out slim hopes for an NIT bid, lost 76-69 to La Salle.
