 At the end of last se-
mester students at the Uni-
versity of Kentucky almost
unanimously voted for
freshman Patrick Patterson
as “UK’s Best” male athlete
of 2008. To those who
watched the young, up-and-
coming star lay basketball
last season t is should
come as little or no sur-

The West Virginia na-
tive choose UK over Duke,
Florida and a slew of other
big name schools that were
interested in the dominant
6’8 power forward. Until
Patterson ste ped on the
floor for the 1rst time,
most fans didn’t realize
how crucial it was for UK
to win the heated recruit-
ing battle for the top-notch

When asked how does
he handle the high expecta-
tions? He replied, “It's Ken-
tucky basketball, and the
fans expect you to make the
(NCAA) tournament and

Sweet 16 every year. I knew
coming in that those were
the expectations, and you
just have to practice and
play hard.”

With the Wildcats off
to a rough start in the 2007-
08 season, Lexington looked
to its freshmen phenome—
non ,to help turn the season
around. In Pat-
terson’s first sea-
son as a wildcat
he was the sec-
ond leading scor-
er only to senior
Joe Crawford.
He showed more
poise and leader-
ship skills than
most players
ever have as an incoming
freshman. Patrick aver-
aged 16.4 points and 7.7 re-
bounds per game and
played over 35 minutes a
game. It doesn’t take a
sgorts analyst to tell you
t at these are some impres-
sive stats for a guy in his
first season of playing Divi-

With his courageous
performances ni ht after
nlght, and his re entless
work ethic, Patrick has
quickly become a fan fa-
vorite amongst all Ken-
tucky fans. He was named
SEC Freshmen of the Week
three times last season and
recorded six

record for 5th
on UK’s double-

UK turned their
season around
it was hit with
some devastat-
ing news, their freshmen

or the remainder of the

In late February the
Wildcats were hit with the
news that Patterson wasn’t
going to be able to finish
the season due to a stress
fracture in his left ankle.

Fearless Freshman

Kyle McCandless ~ Guest Writer Source: www.ukathletics.com

“There’s no doubt in my
mine that Kentucky would
have ended the season
stronger than they did if
Patterson had been able to
play” said, senior UK stu-
dent Billy Kolpp.

At a Ju y 17th ress
conference Coach B1 y
Gillis ie noted that “It
looks ike thin s are way
ahead of sche ule as far as
recover goes.” When
asked a out UK's team
leader next season Gillispie
said, “Our on-court leader
is probably going to be
Patrick Patterson, he's been
our off court leader and
his attitude is fantastic.”

As the next season ap-
proaches, all of the Blue-
grass is sure to have their
eyes on one player in par-
tlcular, Patrick Patterson.
If last year was any indica-
tion of what’s to come from
the rest of Patterson’s time
at UK, wildcat fans are
surely in for a real show.

For all of those hard

friendlier solution to your
wallet. Rather than fueling
up and trackin to another

head toBuffalo Wild Wings.
Just minutes from campus
the Buffalo Wild Win 3 on

voted the best place to watch

to honor B III’s as 1 3 com—

.Campus hadn't seemed so big
when i took the tour of UK in
high school and on the maps 1 had
studied for hours. I really had no
idea where most of the buildings
were. I quickly headed for Rose

Building is pretty easy to find and
I made it in to Krupa's class on

had to become more familiar with

services. activities.
etc., is to take UK 10]. This class
is offered to freshman or transfer
students to help make their tran-
sition into the UK community as
easy as possible. This is an easy
class that is pass/ fail meaning
that if you show up and do the
work that is assigned (which is
minimum) you will pass.

There are two instructors
for every UK 101 class: a professor
or member of UK’s staff and an
upperclassman student. Both of
these instructors are very helpful
and can offer advice in many ar-
eas. The classes are small so you
get to know the people that are in
your class. I met one of my best
friends in UK 101: we met there
and learned that we lived in the
same dorm, right down the hall
from each other.

This class allows you to
further explore UK. For instance

Lively, energetic and outgoing
can all describe Dr. Alan DeSan-
tis. Not only does his personality
stand out among the usual mun-
dane professors that I’ve had. but
his teaching style is a stark con-
trast as well. His demeanor and
actions demand attention from
every corner of a crowded room
with his sporadic movements,
comedic lines and changes in
‘mood’ lighting.

Whether speaking of class re-
lated subjects. university athlet-
ics, personal favorites or his fami-
ly and friends, DeSantis always
immerses himself in the topic.
His personality and passion for
teaching are only a few
reasons why UK students
have voted him the best
UK professor for 7 of the
past 10 years and have
again awarded him with
this honor in 2008.

I recently asked Dr. De-
Santis how he felt about
being voted UK’s 2008 Best
Professor and he said, “It is won-
derful to be recognized for doing
what you love. I am honored and
touched." Dr. DeSantis, associate
professor of communication, has
won numerous awards including
the Inter-fraternity Council's
Great Teacher Award, the Golden
Key Society’s Honorary Member
Recipient Award, and the Alumni
Award for Outstanding Teaching
at the University of Kentucky
during his career at UK. DeSan-
tis also works as the UK Faculty
Athletics Representative to the

When Dr. DeSantis came to
UK he started teaching COM 101.
which at the time had about 80
students a year but over time the
class has grown to an astounding
1,200 students per year. In an in-
terview for excellent teachers giv-
en by UK, he said. “I am going to
teach to my students the way I
wish I was taught to."

As a past student of COM 101,

it’s hard to describe the experi-
ence of DeSantis’s class; it pushes
the limits that have been set by so
many other teachers. He makes
you think about things that
you’ve never really cared about
before and ask yourself what you
can do to change societies flaws.
“If I can get them thinking differ-
ently, more critically, and more
analytically about something that
they thought was benign. heart~
less or simply amusing. then I‘ve
done my job,” says DeSantis.

My favorite thing about De-
Santis‘s class was that he puts his
students in the context of the
world and shows them how the

world has affected them
and how they have or
will affect the world.
“As teachers we never
know where and when
our impact stops. Nev-
er loose the passion for
teaching because in
many ways it is in the
classroom that we have
profound social impact on person-
al lives and on a cultural level as
well," says DeSantis.

When asked in the excel-
lent teacher interview how he
keeps his students attention he
said, “If your enthusiasm isn’t in-
fectious you’re going to loose your
students and all the great content
in the world will be wasted.”

When not working for UK.
DeSantis enjoys spending time
with his family. listening to Bruce
Springsteen, watching the Sopra-
nos and playing percussion. With
all of these hobbies and talents.
he could go anywhere in the
world to pursue many things. but
he chooses to stay at UK. He
claims. “I have the best gig in
America. I can‘t imagine a better
place for me than being here right
now." I. as I’m sure along with the
entire UK community, would like
to thank you. Dr. DeSantis. for be-
ing here and sharing your passion
and energy with us!
