  1. UMass’ Gordon Becomes First Openly Gay Man in NCAA D1

    When the University of Massachusetts Minutemen take to the court in the fall, starting guard Derrick Gordon will be the first openly gay player in NCAA Division 1 men’s basketball. He chose the off-season to declare his sexuality, noting on Instagram that it made him the “happiest I have ever been in my 22 years of living … no more hiding!” Gordon, who averaged 9.4 points a game this season for his 24-9 UMass team this year, said: “It’s like this huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
