For the second year in a row, Archbishop Mitty's Aaron Gordon has been named California's Mr. Basketball by Cal-Hi Sports, the publication announced on its website Monday.

Gordon is the South Bay's first two-time winner of the state's most prestigious high school basketball award and the 10th player to receive the honor in consecutive seasons.

One year after leading Mitty to a Division II state championship, the Arizona-bound Gordon led a new supporting to the inaugural Northern California Open Division championship.

Gordon, the MVP of the McDonald's All-American game last week, came up just short of ending his high school career with three consecutive state titles as Mitty lost to Mater Dei 50-45 in the Open Division final March 23.
