Kemba Walker really wants to take his teammates far in the tournament. Thejunior guard scored 14 points in the first half, 22 in the second. I know Connecticut are too stacked to talk about just one player, but it’s hard not to go ga-ga over this kid.
Speaking of kid, freshman Jeremy Lamb shared Walker’s spotlight, too, as he scored 24 points, including two big dunks that sustained the Huskies’ winning momentum.
San Diego State were no schoolgirls, though. They played UConn from start to finish, where the game kept fluctuating in one teams favor. In the end, though, Aztecs coach Steve Fisher had to end his 66th birthday night on a sour note.
