You guys saw the random twitter updates I threw in other threads, but Hoopniks now has a great recap (http://hoopniks.com/rocky-mountain-fall-showcase-recap) of the day up.
Scott played extremely well in this game and though he can improve his strength and athleticism, he’s likely to solve the lack of a true post player problem that the Buffaloes have had in recent years.
Gordon is stronger than he looks, and has a nose for the ball. When the basketball is free near him, he finds a way to grab ahold of it.

The Colorado Chaos have a great recap (http://coloradochaos.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/RMFS-Event-Report.pdf) of the event up. I seriously recommend reading everything on Gordon & Scott (as well as everyone else), but here are some fun quotes for you.
Josh Scott (6'10" P Lewis-Palmer HS - Committed to Colorado) was an easy choice to be named the Most Outstanding Player of the game. He was simply dominant in the game and finished with RMFS all time records with 46 points and 20 rebounds.
He also added 4 blocks and shot an impressive 14-21 from the field and an even more impressive 18-19 from the free throw line.
He does a great job of mixing strong post moves with crafty moves to the rim from teh mid post and short corner and he finishes equally well with both hands.
Gordon finished the game with a very strong 22 point, 16 rebound, 4 blocked shot performance while shooting 10-15 from the field.
Continued offensive development will help Gordon be a solid player in college and his upside is tremendous.
Also, Scott was a finalist in the slam dunk competition.
Hat Tip to Adam at Rivals for posting the link to this.

Interesting that the Cal commit only shot 3-14 and ended with 6 points. Thats not very impressive. Nice game by the CU boys.
