LIBERTY - Beth Patterson had limited her college choices down to two prospective schools before a new school entered the picture. Just about a month later, that school got a commitment from Patterson. The Casey County senior signed a scholarship Friday to play basketball for Pikeville College. The Bears beat out Cumberland and Union, her first two choices. "The coach at Pikeville (Bill Watson) told me he had been talking to another coach, telling him what he needed this year and what he wanted them to come in and do," Patterson said.
