Cincy’s Bishop Returns to Jersey for RU, SHU; Four Tennessee Players Arrested
Cincinnati has been on national television quite a bit already this college basketball season. And every time they are, the announcers never fail to say that Rashad Bishop is from Newark, N.J. — not Paterson.
But the fact is that Bishop grew up in Paterson and still calls the “Silk City” home. After spending four years at Paterson Kennedy High School, he commuted to St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark for one season and ultimately graduated from there.
“If I’m doing an interview I make sure I tell them,” Bishop said by phone. “When they tell me I’m from Newark I make sure I say I’m from Paterson. I ain’t from Newark.”

“We take these matters very seriously,” Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement released by UT. “We are still gathering information. Once the appropriate authorities have provided us with all of the facts, we will act accordingly.”
