Nine Patterson players scored four or more points as Patterson drew a running clock in the second quarter and cruised to a 64-25 victory over Bluford Drew Jemison Academy.
The Clippers (9-3) broke a two-game losing streak with the win, which never was in doubt. They led 52-16 at halftime thanks to a balanced scoring attack and opportunistic defense.
Junior forward Michael Straham led all scorers with 10 points and added three rebounds and two steals. Sophomore guards Dereck Oliver and Tyquan Pointer and junior guard Dawan Bass each had eight points. Pointer added four steals and Bass had five rebounds.
Junior guard Kwynten Brooks had nine points and three assists and senior guard Devante Conyers had six points, seven rebounds and two steals.
Alongside Straham, the Clippers also got strong play out of the rest of their frontcourt. Senior forward Eric Woods had five points, five rebounds and two blocks; senior forward Anthony Dandridge had four points and two rebounds; and freshman Desmond Brown had six points, nine rebounds, four blocks and three steals.
Senior forward Kyle Jones added three rebounds. The Clippers forced 22 turnovers.
