Scouting Report on Patrick Pattersonby Jerry Meyer - 08/17/2006
A top-notch athlete with a super motor, Patterson competes from baseline to baseline. Offensively, he is best in the mid-range as a shooter and post feeder. He also scores out of the low post and as a rebounder. Defensively, he moves his feet well laterally and can block shots. His ball handling is the weaker area of his game.
