Calipari on Lamb's performance vs Winthrop

Doron Lamb scored 32 points in leading Kentucky to an 89-52 win over Winthrop. Lamb's efforts broke Jamal Mashburn's single game freshman scoring record of 31 points. After the game John Calipari spoke of his Lamb's effort.

John Calipari spoke of freshman Doron Lamb's 32 point outburst against Winthrop in the 89-52 Kentucky win.

"He (Doron Lamb) was good, huh? And you know what else, he was good defensively. We started the game, and they were getting looks because they were back screening the defense, and the man who was guarding that screener wouldn't leave his man to help. So they were open and they didn't make them, but they were open under there.

"And so then Doron just shut it down. He just left his man, stayed on under the basket until his man could go back and get his man and then he found his own. He played great. He was in control and had a couple of assists. You know, big time game. He didn't miss any shots. I mean, he missed one three."

Lamb's 32 points set a new freshman scoring record, breaking the 31 points scored by Jamal Mashburn on February 3, 1991 against Georgia.
