Patterson and Varnado Return to the SEC

Kurt Wirth@Kurt_WirthCorrespondent IMay 11, 2009

In case you’ve been living deep in a hole with your fingers in your ears, the SEC’s two biggest all-star big men have both announced in the past couple of weeks that they will be returning to their respective schools.

Patterson, an offensive-minded powerhouse, will be returning to a Wildcat team that, with a signature from the country’s top freshman in John Wall, will likely be ranked in the top five nationally, preseason.

Varnado returns to MSU as a defensive presence, unlike anything the nation has ever seen before, and likely to break the all-time NCAA career record blocks and finish third all-time at MSU in rebounds.

Just as the league appeared down and out a few months ago, it certainly is taking shape to rock the national scene in 2009-10.
