Trey Patterson’s Career Stats
Hometown: Somerset, N.J.
High school: Rutgers Prep
Trey Patterson player preview:
It’s been a tough year for Patterson, who might not get to see the court until at least January.
At Villanova’s Blue-White Scrimmage, he mentioned on the broadcast his target date to be cleared won’t be until January. He also confirmed the news at Villanova’s Media Day on Thursday.
Patterson underwent surgery on his right shoulder (shooting arm) to repair a torn labrum back in July, which will have him sidelined until then.
Before that, he also had arthroscopic surgery done on both of his hips in May. Patterson also underwent sports hernia surgery at the end of Summer 2022.
Last season was his most active yet. He got to appear in 22 games, averaging 6.8 minutes per game. While his appearances were limited, it was a promising first step forward after previous injuries and challenges off the court.
Unfortunately for Patterson, he won’t be able to make his season debut until much later this season. However, he remains a positive presence in the locker room and a role model for some of the younger players. He’s stuck around the program for more than 2.5 seasons since first coming to the Main Line as an early enrollee during the COVID-impacted 2020-21 season, and he knows a thing or two about Attitude.
Best case scenario: There are no hiccups and Patterson is able to get cleared in January and be an impact player off the bench. There will surely be some rust to shake off, but he’s able to provide quality minutes here and here when called upon towards the end of the year.
Worst case scenario: The season is dedicated to getting Patterson healthy and getting back in shape. Hopefully his tough luck with injuries come to an end, and he’s able to make his mark in the 2024-25 season.
How many games will Trey Patterson get to play in this season? (There are 18 regular season games after January 1.)
