Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said in a teleconference with the school's fans Wednesday that starting guard [db]Evan Gordon[/db] informed the program he will transfer.
Gordon was expected to be a key player for the Sun Devils as a senior after averaging 10.1 points and 32.2 minutes last season, shooting .347 from 3-point range on a team-high 176 attempts.
Jeff Rabjohns, who covers Indiana University basketball for Rivals.com affiliate Peegs.com, initially reported that Gordon would transfer to play for the Hoosiers. Later he clarified in a subsequent tweet that Indiana was one school under consideration.
An Indianapolis native, Gordon graduated from ASU with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies recently and may be able to play without penalty next season as a result. But since he transferred to ASU from Liberty in 2011, that isn't immediately clear and he may have to earn an NCAA appeal.
Gordon did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
This is the second offseason in which ASU has lost a key would-be senior starter to transfer post-graduation after Trent Lockett left in 2012 to play for Marquette.
The Sun Devils were expected to only have to replace their second-leading scorer and top rebounder, Carrick Felix, from last year's staarting lineup, but now will be very inexperienced on the perimeter.
