I was able to watch the full game of Brewster against Worchester Academy recently and wanted to share my thoughts, as both Patterson and McCullough had a good game. The game can be viewed in the following link http://www.thebasketballdiary.com/2013/01/worcester-academy-massachusetts-vs.html.
16pts, 2rbs, 2ast, 3stls, 1blk, 2-5 3PT.
Patterson's handle looked much better and he was more confident handling the ball than the last time that I saw him. He was very active on defense creating steals for fastbreaks and causing a 5 second call late in the game which was huge for the comeback victory. He was 2-5 from three and knocked down a couple of pull-up jumpers. While he has a nice form and quick release, his shot is very streaky as he can hit 2-3 shots in a row and then miss his next 2-3. I do like the fact that he doesn't seem to ever lose his confidence and is always aggressive when he can be on offense. On the next level I view him strictly as a SG, with the ability to help out with ball handling duties here and there, but I don't see natural PG skills where Coach Boeheim would be comfortable letting him run the team for long stretches.
17pts, 6rbs, 2blks, 4-6FT, 1-1 3PT.
McCullough was all over the floor like a sprinter. He scored in transition, drives to the hoop, and knocking down a couple of perimeter shots. He played out on the perimeter a lot, but that was mostly because Brewster ran a 4 out 1 in set to keep the post players(Macon WVU and Washington NC St) from being double teamed inside. McCullough is going to be a beast in transition on the next level because it's rare to see a player his size move that fast up and down the court. As I always say after watching him that I would love to see some low post skills down on the block, but that will probably come in time. His teammates Macon and Washington occupy a lot of time in the post and for good reason because both are really skilled inside, and sometimes I find myself hoping to see some of those low post skills from him as well.
