JEREMY LAMB41. Jeremy Lamb (2010-12) 6-5, G. Lamb served as Robin to Kemba Walker’s Batman in 2011, coming up huge in big games in the NCAA Tournament.

Lamb scored 24 points in a narrow 74-67 win over San Diego State in the Sweet 16, including a gigantic three with just over a minute to go and an even bigger steal to seal the game with 24 seconds left. He put up 19 against Arizona in the Elite Eight, and scored 12 and ripped down 9 rebounds in the National Semifinals against Kentucky.

He averaged 17.7 points per game during a disappointing 2011-12 campaign, but was selected with the 12th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets.
