This is just a long line of accolades for Patterson who has been the ACC Player of the Week multiple times this year and is also a candidate for the USBWA’s Oscar Robertson Trophy.
Patterson is one of four ACC players on the Naismith Watch List including Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis and CJ Fair and Duke’s Jabari Parker.
