Meeks and Patterson nation's top scoring duo
Jan. 22, 2009
Wednesday night's game against Auburn did little to squash the concerns about UK finding a third scoring option (other than Perry Stevenson), but maybe it won't matter.
UK's dynamic duo of Jodie Meeks and Patrick Patterson is officially the most prolific scoring tandem in the nation after combining for 52 points Wednesday night against Auburn. Meeks and Patterson are averaging a combined 44.3 points per game, just a shade better than Chicago State' David Holston and John Cantrell (44.0 points per game).
Meeks scored a game-high 31 points against the Tigers and Patterson put together his most complete game of the year with 21 points and a career-high 18 rebounds.
If the two keep it up, is UK really that desperate for a third option? Fans are concerned that they're going to have an off-night - which in all likelihood will happen - but they continue to will the Wildcats to victory.
Plus, let's keep in mind that Stevenson did notch a double-double last night. At times he's inconsistent, but why isn't he considered a third option? Let me know what you think. The scoring list is below, and NCAA.com is supposed to have a story about it later on.
