Patrick, coming off the bench as he continues to adjust from football, sparked the G-House with 38 points, 27 rebounds and seven blocks as the Griffins went 2-1 in the tournament.
“His versatility makes him such a valuable player,” Grossmont coach Doug Weber said. “He defended guards and in the post and scored with inside play, as well as hitting (3-pointers).”
On Saturday, he helped the Jets to a 77-66 non-conference victory over Moorpark at home with 15 points and 12 rebounds. This came after he had 14 points and had five rebounds in a 73-67 loss to Pasadena City College to begin the Imperial Valley College Holiday Classic, came back with 19 points and six rebounds in a 65-64 win over Barstow in the consolation semifinals, then tallied eight points and also had eight rebounds in the consolation finals, a 63-58 win vs. Cuyamaca.
