Eliminated from the post season and thoroughly outplayed at his position Patrick Beverley got over his disappointment by beating a youngster in 1-on-1.

Hey it’s not to say Patrick Beverley of the Houston Rockets should have let a youngster win, but does he have to be so dialed in? As per the youtube video that surfaced below it showcases the Houston Rockets point guard playing a pick-up game of one on one with a 5’1″ young lady Adriiana Jackson.

Jackson played at Houston Baptist University this past season was a four sport athlete prior to joining the Huskies and was known for her ability to play defense especially using her later quickness on defenders.

"As a sophomore, Jackson led the district in points with 438 and was named to the Premier Basketball Report “30 In 30 Players to Watch” in addition to earning a Player of the Week nod in the . She was nominated as Greatest Basketball Player of 2013 in as well. Jackson was named First Team All-District and First Team All-Region. In addition, she earned North Shore MVP and TABC All-Region honors, and was also accepted into the National Honor Society. Houston Chronicle Vype Magazine"

Beverley is known to be one of the Houston Rockets who gets out into the community  a lot whether it be for philanthropic efforts or just to interact with fans. So, all kidding aside this was probably a dream for the young Jackson just to spend some time on court with a starting NBA point guard.
