Have the extra sessions with Coach John Calipari been beneficial for junior forward Patrick Patterson?
Calipari said, "He is getting closer. I'm going to work with him everyday. He made 3-4 threes and he was 1-1 from the line. We've got to get him catching balls and going after balls with two hands, so he's a little rougher around the goal, but he is fine. He's not the reason we didn't beat South Carolina. It was not Patrick Patterson. Now, he didn't play great, but eight others guy didn't and I didn't coach great. I got out-coached and they got out played and everybody wanted to put it on Patrick which is not fair because he is doing fine. We need more from him and we're going to start getting more. We'll make calls for him. He has to be a 17 point 10 rebound guy and get rebounds. Let me say this, he's the least of our worries."
Patterson was asked to evaluate his own play following the game.
"This was a good game to bounce back from. I was satisfied from the three point line, three for four. They felt good as I was shooting them. I was working on it all week with coach, and I think today we all had an overall team game," Patterson said.
