    NEW YORK – The 2010 Jordan Brand Classic is especially intriguing this year because five of the 20 players in the game have yet to announce their college choice.

    Of those five, four still have Kentucky on the menu.

    Doron Lamb, Josh Selby, Terrence Jones and C.J. Leslie all list Kentucky as a finalist (Cory Joseph is the lone uncommitted player in the game without the Wildcats).

    “[Kentucky coach John Calipari] is good with guards, he’s a guard coach,” the 6-foot-4 Lamb, out of Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy, said Thursday at the Jordan Brand Classic practice at Sports Club/LA in Manhattan. “He knows what to do with them. He gets them in the league [the NBA] fast so we would want to go there.”

    **See the video interview where Doron says he’s already decided here.
