"Got hit by a screen," Lamb said. "He just put my arm around him, asking me, 'Are you OK? You OK?' Nothing serious. I'm fine.'"
Yes, he is.
While much was made last summer about UConn not getting any of a handful of blue-chip high school seniors, let it be said this March Lamb is looking national flag blue chip.
"I called the house after seeing Jeremy play in something called the Peach Jam tournament and he was MVP there," said Calhoun of his recruitment of Lamb. "He was so thin and this microphone could have scored 13 points against him. I said, 'Hello, is Jeremy there.'"
"No," the voice said. It was Rolando.
Rolando Lamb? The guy who broke Calhoun's heart in 1984? Yes, that Rolando Lamb.
"You owe me something," Calhoun said told him. "Your son."
And then Calhoun, after watching Lamb breaking the hearts of others on his behalf, smiled softly.
"It's ironic," he said.
Yes, it is.
