I bet we could get Jay to wear a Kentucky Sports Radio shirt, if Matt would give him one. You know, to make up for his case against Kentucky entering the NCAA’s last year.
The illustrious Brett Dawson had a very interesting conversation with television-famous Jay Bilas the other day. Of course, the main topic of conversation was Meeks, but I thought Bilas’ comments about Patrick were pretty interesting:
“He’s not the only one getting overlooked on that team,” Bilas said. “(Patrick) Patterson’s the other one. Patterson’s having as good a year as any big guy in the country.”
Wait: Patterson? Overlooked? Is that possible?
“Hell yeah,” Bilas said. “It’s a joke. The guy’s shooting 72 percent.”
Of course, if every team in that plays Kentucky didn’t scheme their entire defense towards preventing Patterson from getting the ball, Pat might be averaging 20 ppg. Also, I wish I had time to go back through each of Patrick’s games and figure out how many points he’s scored after securing an offensive rebounds. It has to be close to 35% of his total points.
