Party In Marion Lands Wyoming Basketball Player In Trouble

Wyoming sophomore forward Whitney Gordon faces charges stemming from a house party in her hometown of Marion, Kansas.

Prosecuting attorney Brian Bina says the charges against Gordon mainly involve minors and alcohol but include one count of interference with law enforcement.

Gordon has an initial court appearance set for next week.

According to police, they were called to Gordon’s home on July 12 and found 27 people, including many minors in possession of alcohol. Police say Gordon’s parents were out of town at the time. Her father is the Marion High School Principal.

UW coach Joe Legerski said in a statement that the situation was being closely monitored.

The 6-foot-2 Gordon played sparingly as a true freshman last season, appearing in eight games. She was a three-time Honorable Mention All-State selection while attending Marion High School.
