Patrick Good breaks school record in win over Western Carolina

Sophomore guard Patrick Good had a record-setting night on Saturday when he broke a school record by hitting 11 3-points in a big win versus Western Carolina. Good was hot all night starting the game at an astonishing 9-10 from the 3-point line. He ended up finished 11-of-17 from beyond the arc and 12-of-18 from the field for a total of 35 points. The 35 points was also a career high for Good.

Patrick Good broke a nearly 10-year old record which had previously been set by ETSU great Courtney Pigram on Feb. 28, 2009. Pat commented in the post game that he knew he was going to have a huge night early in the 2nd half when hit a contested 3-pointer well beyond the NBA line as the shot clock was winding down.

Not only did Patrick Good have a career night but Mladen Armus also had one of the best games of his career. Armus finished with a career-high 21 points (9-of-13 shooting) and grabbed 12 rebounds, while also notching his fourth career double-double.

The Bucs started the game hot with a 17-3 lead early on and never really looked back as the Catamounts could only get as close as 9 points the rest of the game. As a team the Bucs shot well at 55% and Good accounted for 11 of the teams 12 3-pointers. ETSU also forced 21 turnovers which they turned into 38 points. Additionally, the Bucs outscored the Catamounts 44-26 in the paint, including seven dunks.

Highlights from the Bucs win over Western Carolina

Dominance over Western

The ETSU dominance over Western Carolina in basketball continued last night as the Bucs have won 24 of their last 25 over Western Carolina. The Bucs also have not lost in Cullowhee since 1998.

Samford Next

The Bucs will next face Samford in Birmingham. In a game that projects to be a tough matchup for the Bucs. Last time ETSU faced Samford was a few weeks ago in Freedom Hall when Samford came back from 17-points down in the 2nd half to force overtime but later fell to the Bucs in OT. Samford is also coming off a very impressive two game road swing where they led at Wofford for most of the game but later fell by a point in OT thanks to some late game heroics by Fletcher Magee. Then last night the Bulldogs became the first team all year to defeat Furman in Greenville, with a 75-73 victory over the Paladins.

It was announced this morning that former David Crockett basketball star and Appalachian State player, Patrick Good, will be returning to his home in Johnson City to play for ETSU.

As a 6-foot, 162-pound freshman at Appalachian State Good averaged 22 minutes in 29 games. He finished with 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game, while shooting 41.7 percent from the floor and 41 percent from three. Good scored 21 points and shot 5-7 from the 3-point line against Tennessee back in November. He also hit seven 3-pointers in a game against Texas-Arlington later in the season.

“I love the city that I grew up in and I am thrilled with the opportunity,” Good told The Johnson City News & Neighbor. “I know a lot of people support me and love ETSU. So if you put those two things together, we may be able to have something special.”

Good also said he attended the ETSU vs UT basketball game in December and loved seeing the enthusiasm from the ETSU crowd in Freedom Hall. He is looking forward to being part of that enthusiasm for the rest of his college career.

Good would have to sit out the 2017-18 season per NCAA transfer rules but will have 3 years of eligibility left.

Patrick Good will join fellow ETSU newcomers, Kendrick Gray, Andre Edwards, Mladen Armus, Bo Hodges, Jeromy Rodriguez, and James Harrison as part of the 2017-2018 recruiting class.

Welcome home Patrick!
