Rockets' senior scores 30 points against Lyons Township, becoming sought-after recruit
Burlington Central’s Patrick Mayfield padded his chest and uttered a few words to encourage himself late in the second quarter of a game Jan. 19 against Lyons Township.
The high-scoring senior guard had just shot an airball in a showcase game against the Class 4A Lions. On the next possession, the 6-foot-5 Mayfield shot another airball on a post-up move.
As a high-volume shooter, Mayfield quickly shrug off both airballs to bury a 3-pointer with 51 seconds left in the second quarter. Mayfield finished with a game-high 30 points in a 75-60 loss in the Burlington Central MLK Classic.
