Patrick Scott a Bear River High School graduate dropped in a game-high 22 points but the Sonoma State men's basketball team, despite trailing by just six points midway through the second half, dropped a 73-55 decision to NCAA Division I St. John's in exhibition action at Carnesecca Arena in Queens, N.Y.  

The Seawolves kept the Red Storm in check for most of the contest, but a combination of 27 Sonoma turnovers and 12 blocks by St. John's defenders would prove to be too much in SSU's first-ever trip to the East Coast.

Also Scott was named the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Men's Basketball Player of the Week for November 12th through 18th.  Scott helped lead the Seawolves to a 1-1 record at the 12th Annual Ron Logsdon Basketball Classic, earning All-Tournament honors in the process.

Scott's week started with a 28-point performance against Minnesota State on Saturday.  The Grass Valley native shot 11-of-14 from the field and 4-of-5 from beyond the three-point line in 38 minutes of action.  The next night, Scott scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds as the Seawolves handed Dominican University its first loss of the season, 91-87 in overtime. 

Scott's weekend totals included 21.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game.  He shot 14-of-20 from the field and 5-of-8 from three-point territory.

The Seawolves return to action on Nov. 30th when they host Cal State Monterey Bay in the CCAA opener for both teams.
