WINDSOR, Ontario Ã¢â‚¬â€ Kentucky coach John Calipari liked what freshman guard Doron Lamb did Tuesday Ã¢â‚¬â€ he scored 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field with only one turnover in 31 minutes Ã¢â‚¬â€ and the way he improved on the trip.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Today we were throwing the ball ahead and he was like it was high school, AAU. He was not ready to attack,Ã¢â‚¬Â Calipari said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“He was holding, and the whole defense got to him.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“As he attacked, he scored layups. He has to beat his man. He has to make decisions now. You have to beat your man. He started beating him. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard decision-making, but he did good. There were a couple of plays he was not playing at the pace of the game, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s August.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Lamb averaged 17.7 poins, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 steals per game. He was 19-for-36 from the field, 4-for-10 from 3-point range and 11-for-14 at the foul line. He had just five turnovers in 92 minutes of play.
Dodson update: Kentucky senior Josh Harrellson indicated after TuesdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s game that junior Darnell Dodson might be returning to the team.
Calipari, who announced earlier this month that Dodson would not be playing this year even though he was academically eligible, had a slightly different take on Dodson, just as he did last Friday.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Darnell may be back but he wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be playing. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even know if he will be practicing,Ã¢â‚¬Â Calipari said.
