The freshman sharpshooter from Charlotte, NC (Charlotte Christian School) will miss the 2013-14 season due to the expected recovery time of the surgery. Dr. Larry Bowman will lead a team of surgeons from Blue Ridge Orthopedics that will be performing the procedure.

“This is an unfortunate situation for Patrick,” Brownell said. “He is a three-point specialist who shot the ball very well in Italy. Fortunately for us, we do have great depth in the backcourt.

We look forward to having Patrick ready to go next season.”
