Patterson Out for Hoosiers
As first reported at www.insidethehall.com, the Indiana Hoosiers will be without the services of guard Ron Patterson.
The good news for Indiana is this gets them down to the limit of 13 scholarships for next season, which would have been interesting had Patterson been able to play.
Patterson did not meet Indiana’s eligibility requirements, but he might be able to pass the muster somewhere else, so his future in Bloomington is even more in doubt. He was seen as a player who could help the Hoosiers on defense from the get go. This quote, from last November and from the linked item:
The Hoosiers have been a popular pick as a preseason #1 in many polls and I don’t believe this will hurt their standing all that much. Sure, the Hoosiers would rather go forward with him but I don’t believe his presence was going to make the difference in a deep run come March.
