Patterson used a balanced scoring effort and a strong second-half defense to defeat defending Maryland 4A champion Eleanor Roosevelt, 66-57, at the Basketball Academy at Morgan State.
Four players scored in double digits for the Clippers (13-2), who bounced back from a one-point loss to Randallstown on Thursday night.
Dawan Bass and Rysheed Corbin scored 15 points a piece, with Corbin being named game MVP. He also had seven rebounds, three assists and three steals. Bass followed up his double-double against Randallstown with another strong all-around game — he added five rebounds and two steals.
Kwynten Brooks scored 13 points and had four rebounds, while Dereck Oliver had 12 points, two rebounds and two assists.
Eleanor Roosevelt shot 15 of 20 from the field in the first half, but the Clippers limited the Raiders to 9 of 24 in the second half. The defensive effort was buoyed by Desmond Brown, who had his best game of the season. He finished with six points, nine rebounds and six blocked shots. Patterson out-rebounded Eleanor Roosevelt 28-18 in the game.
Daquan Jones, who was given the scholar athlete award, had three points and Tyquan Pointer added two points to round out the scoring.
Patterson is back in action on Tuesday when it visits Forest Park.
