HSBB: Bluffton’s Patterson Picked For Carolinas Classic

Bluffton High School senior Jermaine Patterson can make a rare claim for a two-sport high school star in South Carolina – he was picked for the state’s most prestigious senior all-star game in both football and basketball.

Patterson was one of 10 players named to the South Carolina team for the Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic on Tuesday, and the only selection who also was picked to represent the Palmetto State in the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas all-star football game last fall. Patterson, who was named the inaugural LowcoSports.com All-Area Offensive Player of the Year for football, elected not to play in the Shrine Bowl because the game fell during basketball season.

A 5-11 guard, Patterson has led the Bobcats to a 14-7 overall record and a 5-2 mark in region play heading into the regular-season finale Thursday at Ridgeland-Hardeeville. He is averaging 28 points, five rebounds, and five assists.

On Monday, Phenom Hoop Report reported Patterson’s commitment to play basketball at Queens University of Charlotte, the No. 2 ranked team in NCAA Division II.
