#3 Jeremy Lamb | G

Hometown: Norcross, GA

Height: 6'5"

Weight: 185

Position: Shooting Guard

Team: Connecticut

Class: Sophomore


Right-handed… Lamb's freshman season was a tale of two halves- he averaged 9.6 points per game on 46 percent shooting, including 31 percent from 3-point range during the regular season. But in the Big East Tournament and NCAA Tournament, Lamb averaged 16 points on 55 percent shooting from the field… He has a ridiculous 7-foot wingspan to go along with his 6'5" height, Lamb has scouts drooling over his potential. He can get his shot off in close quarters with his length or harass opponents on the defensive end… On the offensive end, he's very active. He's always moving without the ball, coming off screens and curling from 12-15 feet out for a mid-range jumper. He's excellent from this area and seems to have found his stroke out to 24 feet as well…

Lamb could use another year of seasoning at UConn to put on strength. He has a tremendously long frame, but is very weak and has room to grow… There's no doubt that Lamb had the hot hand over the season's final 10-12 games for the Huskies, which brings into question his shot selection at times. We know that when you're feeling it, you're feeling it and that's been the case for Lamb, but there have been some forced jumpers, fading-away and shooting off-balance. His slender size makes it difficult for Lamb to create contact or go into his man… He can really do some work with his ball-handling this summer. With some advanced ball moves to create separation, Lamb would do wonders in creating his own shot and not relying upon the likes of Kemba Walker to do so.
