Norcross Grad Profiled in Connecticut Paper

Jeremy Lamb has been making headlines with UConn basketball.

Jeremy Lamb, the basketball player who has been making headlines as the highest scoring player of the UConn team, was profiled recently in the Stamford Advocate, a local newspaper. 

The profile paints a picture of Lamb as a player who got a slower start than some other star freshman--but as someone who has a unique work ethic. The writer points to his early morning practices at Norcross High School and the middle-of-the-night practice sessions Lamb has been pulling this year. 

"For Lamb, the empty gymnasium has always been therapeutic," writes Kevin Duffy in the article. "Just like a grade-schooler in the driveway, Lamb still does the countdown (the "3, 2, 1 buzzer beater") and envisions the Gampel crowd going crazy when, in reality, Blanco [the manager] is the only other person in the arena." 

Lamb has averaged a team-high of 19 points per game, according to the article. He is described as a gifted player with " a natural aptitude for the game."
