It's been tough sledding of late for the Patterson boys basketball team. Previously No. 1 in our poll, the Clippers (8-5) followed Friday's 64-55 loss to rival Dunbar with an 89-63 loss Saturday to St. Benedict's at the Dan Finn Classic in Jersey City and a 75-73 defeat on a buzzer-beater Monday at Gonzaga (D.C.). But those results never get in the way of enjoying an Aquille Carr highlight reel. Here are a couple videos from Monday's game from TheMarsReel.com (which includes the game-winner by Gonzaga's Kris Jenkins)

With Carr scoring a career-high 57 points, the No. 2 Clippers ran away with the tournament title, coming away with a convincing 103-71 win over the No. 11 Foresters.
