Collins wins award
Kansas senior guard Sherron Collins on Friday was named the winner of the inaugural Lute Olson National Player of the Year Award, as presented by collegeinsider.com. The Olson Award will be presented annually to the country’s top Div. I player who has played at least two seasons with his respective team. The award is named in honor of former Arizona coach Olson.
Doron Lamb, a 6-foot-4 senior guard from Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., will meet with new St. John’s coach Steve Lavin after the Final Four, Zagsblog.net reports.
Lamb, Rivals.com’s No. 21-rated player, who is from Queens, N.Y., has had a firm list of Kansas, Kentucky, Arizona, UConn and West Virginia for many weeks.
“St. John’s is an option,” a source told Zagsblog.net.
Lamb will orally commit to a school at the Jordan Brand Classic, set for April 17, in New York’s Madison Square Garden.
