Tyler Lamb (#57 Scout, #99 Rivals, #33 ESPN) didn't stand out in particular in this game against a very talented Whitney Young team, but his team really didn't need him to do much but play his typical game.

Lamb doesn't really stand out physically on first glance, being a 6-3 or 6-4 skinny combo guard with an average frame and just decent athleticism. He doesn't appear to be much of a scorer either, as he's a decent shooter and average shot-creator, while he struggled to finish around the basket in the few occasions he tried getting there. He is extremely unselfish, though, showing some potential to possibly develop some point guard skills down the road, being a very good passer (particularly with his post-entry looks) and highly intelligent moving the ball around in Mater Dei's half-court sets. Fundamentally sound defensively, Lamb looked like a very competitive player, playing extremely hard and doing a good job hustling after rebounds. He's a role player in high school, and will almost certainly be a role player in college, which is exactly what Ben Howland will need from him at UCLA. There is a lot to be said for signing players from great high school programs that already know how to win, work and execute, and Howland seems to understand that as well as anyone.
