UC girls’ outing
has time change
The Union City girls’ game with University School of Jackson in the Westview Thanksgiving Classic Friday has been switched from an 11:30 a.m. tipoff to a 2:30 start.
The change was to accommodate Henry County, which requested to move its game up so that Patriot fans might also travel to Nashville to see the HC football team’s Class 4A semifinal game against Hillsboro.
The Union City boys will play in the Westview event on Friday, facing Dyer County at 8:30 p.m.

Allison Wright and Sienna Forney both reached double digits for the winners with 10 points apiece.
UTM didn’t take its first lead in the contest until the two-minute mark, but had a couple of defensive stands late to preserve the win
UK star Patterson
helped by pep talk
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Patrick Patterson isn’t the kind of player that needs a lot of pep talks. Still, the Kentucky star admits he needed one after his sophomore year got off to a sluggish start.
A quick call home changed all that.
Playing with the passion his father Buster told him was necessary for the Wildcats to turn things around, Patterson scored a career-high 28 points in Kentucky’s easy 91-57 win over Longwood on Monday night.
Taking a cue from their fast-starting big man, the Wildcats (2-2) won their second straight by dominating the overmatched Lancers from the start. Kentucky raced to a quick 24-point and cruised behind the play of Patterson, who appears to be hitting his stride seven months removed from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left ankle. Patterson scored 22 points in the first half alone, a marked departure from Kentucky’s first three games when he seemed to disappear at times on the floor.
