Gordon One and Done

That was fast.

Last night Derrick Gordon of Seton Hall became the first openly gay player to play in the NCAA men's basketball Tournament.  But Gordon and his Pirates didn't live to see another game, falling to Gonzaga.

If you're sad at his quick exit, it might help to know that Gordon made a second piece of history.  He's the first player in NCAA history to go to the Big Dance with three different teams, namely Western Kentucky, the University of Massachusetts and Seton Hall.

Gay men do like to travel.
