Tone Patton, Men's Basketball, Week of Feb. 4-10

What a week for Pirate freshman Tone Patton of the men's basketball team. The 6-foot-4-inch swing-man from Chicago averaged 27.5 points over VC's two games last week while shooting 24-36 from the floor (67 percent) and 3-7 from behind the 3-point line (43 percent). He pulled in 20 rebounds and handed out three assists with three blocked shots for good measure in two Pirate victories. In part due to his efforts, Ventura has a two-game lead in the Western State Conference race with four games remaining in search of the program's fourth straight WSC title. Tone has been named this week's VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week.
