Doron Lamb To Oak Hill; Gauchos Lose in AAU Finals
Doron Lamb is headed to Oak Hill for his junior season, according to a source close to the Gauchos program.
The 6-foot-4, 175-pound Lamb wore an “Oak Hill” T-shirt all week in Orlando, where he played for both the Gauchos 17U and 16 teams, both of which lost in the finals of the AAU Nationals. He later confirmed to NYCHoops.net that he would be attending the Virginia school after spending his first two seasons at Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn.
Lamb, the No. 9 point guard in the Class of 2010 according to Rivals, will play for Steve Smith at Oak Hill.
Lamb reportedly holds offers from Rutgers, Louisville, Xavier and Georgia Tech and has interest from Connecticut, Seton Hall, St. Johns, and Syracuse.
Speaking of Lamb, the Gauchos lost in the title games of the AAU Nationals in Orlando in both the 16U and 17U brackets. Team Breakdown, featuring Kenny Boynton and Brandin Knight, beat the Gauchos, 77-60, in the 17s final and All-Ohio downed the 16s in the title game.
Lamb had 17 points and 7 rebounds for the Gauchos in the final. Russell Smith of Archbishop Molloy added 16 points, 4 assists and 3 steals and Durand Scott of Rice tallied 12 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals.
