Kentucky sophomore Patrick Patterson has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week.
The 6-9 center averaged a double-double last week with 30 points and 12.5 rebounds per game while helping lead the Wildcats to wins over Tennessee State and Florida Atlantic.
He has eight double-doubles this season and 14 in his career, tying Randolph Morris for 26th on UK's all time double-double list. Patterson recorded a career-high 33 points against Tennessee State and followed with a 27-point effort against Florida Atlantic while pulling down 11 and 14 rebounds, respectively.
The award was his first of the season and the fourth weekly honor of his career for Patterson.
It also marked the second straight week a Kentucky player has been named the SEC Player of the Week and the fourth time this season. Jodie Meeks has received the honor twice while DeAndre Liggins was named the league's freshman of the week earlier this year.
