Western Kentucky freshman guard Derrick Gordon will transfer, according to WKUHerald.com.

Gordon, who starred alongside Kentucky freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick, wants to move closer to his home in Plainfield, N.J., the paper reported.

Gordon is considering Dayton, Seton Hall, Penn State and Virginia Tech, St. Patrick coach Chris Chavannes told SNY.tv.

The last time Derrick Gordon and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist shared a basketball court they played in the mythical high school national championship game last March at Rutgers.

The former Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick teammates were upset by St. Anthony in that game and their dream of a perfect season and mythical national title came crashing down.

Now, one year later, Gordon and Gilchrist will meet up in the second round of the NCAA Tournament when No. 16 Western Kentucky meets No. 1 Kentucky at 6:50 Thursday evening in Louisville.
