Saint Patrick's New Jersey vs Huntington West Virginia on ESPN2

Mark your calendars, two high profile prep basketball teams are facing off on ESPN2, on Thursday February 22, 2007, on ESPN2, at 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern. St Patricks of New Jersey faces off with Patrick Patterson's and OJ Mayo's Huntington. OJ Mayo is committed to USC but Patrick Patterson is the most highly ranked uncommitted players with a number of teams, including Florida, Kentucky and Duke, going after his signature.

In my opinion, the best fit for Patrick Patterson is anywhere but Duke. Players succeed in the NBA, not because they play at Duke but despite playing at Duke :-) The lucky ones escape early (eg Corey Maggette, Luol Deng), before Coach K drains the lifeforce out of them! Pick Kentucky or Florida (or anyone else), you get two great coaches in Tubby and Donovan, two great programs, and you play in a nice arena, not a pre-historic cavern with open doors!
