The UConn Men’s Basketball team may not be in the NCAA Tournament this year, but still there are Huskies making plays in March. Jeremy Lamb, a key member of the 2011 championship team, hit a last-second game-winner for the Charlotte Hornets, a team that normally depends on fellow 2011 NCAA national champion Kemba Walker.
Here’s how it went down:
Late heroics aside, Lamb is having the best season of his seven-year pro career. He’s averaging 15.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2 assists per game in his fourth season with the Hornets after three years with Oklahoma City that included stints in the D-League. At 26 years old, he’s now in solid footing as an NBA pro with a bright career ahead of him. Have a night young man!
