Patrick Davell Patterson (born March 14, 1989) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Toronto Raptors of the NBA. He played collegiately for the University of Kentucky. He is a 6'9", 235-pound power forward who grew up in Huntington, West Virginia.[1] During his high school career, Patterson helped lead Huntington High School to three-straight state championships, the last one with help from O. J. Mayo, and was named a McDonald's All-American. Patterson realized his dream of becoming a NBA lottery pick by being selected at #14 overall in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets.

Early life[edit]

Patterson, born in Washington, D.C.,[2] graduated from Huntington High School in Huntington, West Virginia in 2007.

College career[edit]

Patrick Patterson played college basketball for the University of Kentucky. He chose to play for Kentucky rather than Duke or Florida in a highly publicized recruiting battle. He was recruited by Kentucky coach Tubby Smith and his replacement Billy Gillispie.[3][4] In the 2009–10 season he played for former Memphis coach John Calipari who became Billy Gillispie's replacement in April 2009.

Freshman season[edit]

During Patterson's freshman All-American 2007–08 season, Patterson averaged 16.4 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 0.8 steals, while shooting 57% from the field. After a Kentucky victory over the Ole Miss Rebels, Patterson missed the remainder of the 2007–08 season with a stress fracture in his left ankle. He also claimed he planned on staying at Kentucky rather than participating in the NBA Draft.

Sophomore season[edit]

For his sophomore season at UK during the 2008–09 season, he and teammate Jodie Meeks became one of the most successful duos that season, and also became the most productive duo at Kentucky, since the days of Dan Issel and Mike Pratt. Patterson scored a career-high 33 points on December 22, 2008 against the Tennessee State Tigers. During Patterson's sophomore 2008–09 season, he averaged 17.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 0.6 steals, while shooting 60% from the field. April 18, 2009, Patterson decided to enter his name into the 2009 NBA Draft. However, Patrick decided he would return to Kentucky for a third season on May 8, 2009.

Junior season[edit]

Patterson continued to play a crucial role for the team during his junior season. However, with the addition of freshman players John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe, Patterson was no longer required to be the main option for scoring and rebounding. Patterson also improved his outside shot, shooting about 40% from the 3-point line all season (compared to no 3-pointers made in the previous seasons). During this season, Patterson helped the team win the SEC Tournament and achieve a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004. On April 23, 2010, Patterson entered the 2010 NBA Draft; by the time of the draft, he had completed his coursework and earned a degree from UK.[5]
