McSweeney player of the game in Louisville-Bellarmine exhibition

Patrick McSweeney

Patrick McSweeney living the dream as he gets off a three-point attempt for Bellarmine University in an exhibition basketball game against the University of Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center. Patrick, a 15-year-old St. X student battling lukemia, would connect on a layup seconds later to put his team on the scoreboard. Things quickly went south for Bellarmine after McSweeney left the game, UofL winning by a lopsided 82-57 score. He was selected as Player of the Game, scoring two points and stripping the ball from Terry Rozier.
