Paterson Catholic Closing Its Doors

Myles Mack is the No. 114 ranked basketball prospect by Rivals.com for the Class of 2011 with scholarships offers from various Big East, ACC and SEC schools.

Mack politely declined to comment when reached by text. His father Wayne, however, had plenty to say.

“We didn’t know at all. We didn’t know anything. We thought everything was fine and then all of a sudden — boom.”
