U19 reviews of players the Hoyas may face

U19 worlds are over and Luke Winn gave some player evals.  The US wasn't on TV or in the championship game, but some B.E. players did participate.  Luke's thoughts on them after the jump

Jeremy Lamb, UConn (27.6 mpg, 16.2 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 18 steals): Without question the go-to scorer of this team and a potential All-American in 2011-12. He almost single-handedly carried them back into the Russia game, and hit the winning bucket against Australia (although he described his 2-of-14 performance in that contest as "terrible"). His massive wingspan helped him lead the team in steals and deflections, but he'll need to be a more consistently hard-nosed defender to be one of the best all-around players in college next season.

James Bell, Villanova (16.1 mpg, 3.8 ppg, 3.1 rpg): Earned his way into the starting lineup for all nine games due to Hewitt's belief that Bell was the best on-ball defender on the roster. The U.S. failure to put Bell on Russian star Dmitry Kulagin -- who lit them up for 14 first-quarter points -- may have doomed them, though.
