Jeremy Lamb is an extremely long and athletic shooting guard that played an integral part to UConn’s 2011 NCAA Championship title as a freshman last season. As a freshman, Lamb had tremendous success playing off the ball with Kemba Walker running the offense. During the 2011 NCAA Tournament, Lamb proved himself a very clutch player and excelled with the game on the line. He is the son of former NBA player Rolando Lamb, which has contributed to his high basketball IQ and great feel for the game. This year as a sophomore, the versatile guard assumed much more of the ball handling duties with Kemba Walker in the NBA, and went from a mainly off the ball type player to more of a combo guard. Coming off last year’s championship title, Lamb and the rest of the talented UConn team had high expectations that they fell far short of. Struggling to completely adapt to his new role in the offense, Lamb was still able to have a good season and had flashes of his enormous potential at the NBA level.
