Keeping up with Recruits…

Jaida Patrick

The future Blue Devil made her way onto the court once again after being sidelined with an injury. Patrick’s coach wanted to ease her into play, since she was coming off the injury so her minutes were limited. Patrick fouled out in the fourth quarter, but still ended the game with 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals, and one block. Patrick played again this past Saturday, and put up 17 points.  More info here.
