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."
