Standing at 6 foot 9 inches, junior Center Carte’Are Gordon is the tallest player on the 2016-17 basketball team. Ironically, until last night, Gordon had never scored a point this year.

Players on the basketball team are unsure of Gordon’s role; however, they look forward to playing with him.

Junior forward Ryan Rusan said, “I’m excited to play with him; it’ll a be a new way of play. It’s something everyone has been waiting for. This is a time for Carte’Are to show his strengths and test himself. It’s make it or break it for him right now.”

Gordon offers new opportunities for the Statesmen. Gordon is excited and confident in joining back.

Gordon said, “I’ve been itching to play and I’m ready to get a ring. I think I’m going to change a lot of team play, but we’ll still do great. I was a missing piece to the team and will try to perform for (head coach Jay) Blossom.

Junior guard R.J. Wright said, “Now that Carte’Are is back in play, I’m going to be looking to pass to him in the inside more.”

Wright said, “He’s (Carte’Are) going to help us in a big way. We’re going to have better rebounding, and he’s going to have more game deciding dunks. I’m going to pass to the inside more.”

Webster’s next game is Jan. 27, 7:15 p.m. vs SLUH.
