I know Chris has probably felt a bit bad at times, consistently naming Lamar Patterson as our Cardiac Hill Panther of the Week all the time. But it should be some consolation to him that Patterson is becoming a regular for the ACC's weekly award as well.
Patterson was named the Conference Player of the Week for a third time (a co-winner with Wake Forest's Travis McKie) this season and set some records in the process. Patterson is the only player in program history to win the award three times in one year. Not only that, but his three awards also tied Patterson with six other Pitt players (Sam Young, Carl Krauser, Vonteego Cummings, Sam Clancy, Clyde Vaughan, and Brandin Knight) for the career mark.
Last week, Patterson averaged 20.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 3.0 steals in wins against Maryland and Clemson.
With several more cracks at it this season, there's a good chance Patterson could set a new career record with his fourth such award.
