2010 Intro: Doron Lamb

Quality guards continue to pop up in New York and it appears that Doron Lamb is the next good one to come out of the Big Apple.

New York City is known for producing talented guards. The 2008 class has Kemba Walker. The junior class is anchored by Lincoln standout Lance Stephenson. Next up is Doron Lamb.

"He's up there with the best to me," Brooklyn (N.Y.) Bishop Loughlin head coach Khalid Greene said about his talented sophomore.

"He's younger than most of the best guards that you would think of right now like Kemba Walker, Erving Walker and Lance Stephenson, but I think as far as talent he's creeping up in that category where you have to mention him when you mention the best."

The 6-foot-4, 170-pound combo guard is already making a splash in the Big Apple, as he's averaging 27 points for Bishop Loughlin, who is 9-3 on the season.

"This has been my best season so far," Lamb said. "I'm doing better and I've worked on my game.

Like most NYC guards, Lamb is known for his natural scoring ability. Although he can play both guard spots, he has a knack for filling it up and he shoots it well out to the three-point stripe.

"He's definitely stepped up to the competition and has showed that he's one of the better scorers in New York City, if not the country," Greene said. "I'm impressed with how he's starting to play better defense."

"Last year we had him play a lot at the point, this year when it's crunch time and we need to ball in his hands then he plays the one. We've played him a lot off the ball this year and for us he's played the one, two and three. He's just very versatile."

Already Lamb holds scholarship offers from Xavier, Louisville and Rutgers. There are also a host of other schools involved. Georgia Tech, Georgetown, St. John's and Seton Hall have made an early impact as well.

"Obviously there is some interest from some guys and schools have called me and let me know that they definitely want to be in the loop when he comes down to choosing from his list of schools," Greene said. "I expect nothing less than a high-major program for him."

This summer Lamb will play with New York Gauchos and will likely play up in the 17's division.
