University of Connecticut sophomore guard Jeremy Lamb today announced he will forgo his junior season and instead enter the NBA Draft. Lamb, an AP Preseason All-American and projected lottery pick, led the Huskies in scoring last season at 17.7 points per game. The Hartford Courant has the details: “’It was a difficult decision,’ Lamb said in a statement, ‘but after much prayer and discussion with my parents, I feel that it’s in the best interest of me and my family to declare myself eligible for the upcoming NBA draft and pursue my dream of playing professional basketball. I have very much enjoyed my two years at UConn, especially getting to experience one of the greatest feelings that a college player can have, winning the national championship.’ Though Lamb’s sophomore season was somewhat disappointing compared to preseason expectations — he was an AP Preseason All-American, but an honorable mention on the postseason squad — he attracted attention from scouts all season and various experts have had him going anywhere from fifth to 14th in the draft in June.”
