Lamb's 'Extraterrestrial' Dunk
I wasn't at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am Sunday night, but apparently Jeremy Lamb threw down a dunk that ranks among the top 3 in the league's history, according to GHPA director Pete Higgins.
Apparently Greg Langston, a freshman at Southern Connecticut State, was guarding Lamb for much of the game and doing a pretty good job (even though Lamb notched a triple-double). But late in the game, Langston clapped his hands inside the lane and challenged Lamb to beat him. No problem.
Looks like this may be the dunk we're hearing about.
Lamb pulled off a crossover for the ages, Langston fell to the floor a la Gary McGhee, and Lamb threw down a jam that they'll be talking about at the GHPA for years to come.
"Everybody just went home after that," said Higgins, only slightly exaggerating.
Seriously, everyone at the pro-am tonight is talking about this dunk in hushed tones.
"It wasn't quite Biblical," said Higgins, "but it was extraterrestrial."
One thing seems sure: Lamb's confidence, and athleticism, are through the roof right now.
Oh, and if you're wondering who has the other two "top 3" dunks in GHPA history, Higgins says it's Waterbury's Kelvin Davis, who threw down on UConn's Curtis Kelly about six years ago, and UNH's Cassius Chaney.
