Lamb was a huge reason why Jim Calhoun and the Huskies won the NCAA Championship in 2011. His freshman season started off slowly, but by March he was UCONN's second-best player. He is incredibly long (7'0" wingspan) and extremely athletic, making him very effective defensively. He has a good (but not great) jump shot, which will need to improve for him to achieve status as a truly elite prospect.
Lamb will clearly be the focus of UCONN's offense this upcoming season, and it will be interesting to see how the departure of Kemba Walker affects his play. There will be more shots available, but defenses will also attack Lamb very differently than they did this past season. He needs to add strength to his long frame, but his worst-case NBA comparison is Corey Brewer.
