Saturday was just another day at the office for LSU freshman Jalyn Patterson.
The laid-back rookie with a composed game logged 35 minutes, posting nine points, four rebounds, five assists and one steal versus only one turnover in the Tigers' 73-63 win over Ole Miss.
According to Patterson, who started his seventh straight game with the Rebels in town, it's no coincidence that he's been playing better since head coach Johnny Jones inserted him into the first five.
"I'm just a little bit more confident," Patterson told TSD. "Anytime you're in the starting lineup you're going to be more confident and things like that."
The Alpharetta, Ga., native and two-time national champ on the high school level discussed that and more in postgame interviews. Patterson even recalled being the one to tell backcourt mate Tim Quarterman that he was closing in on a triple-double.
