UConn a Contender With Kemba Walker Leading the Way

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Before the season started, Kemba Walker was not a familiar name for many. The Connecticut Huskies were selected to finish tenth in the Big East Conference by the coaches.

However, the UConn Huskies and Walker have surprised teams this season.

Walker led the Huskies with a season-high 42 points against Vermont and came away with a 89-73 victory.

Led by Walker's 29-point performance in the second half, the Huskies were able to pull away from the Wichita State Shockers 83-79.

One night later, Walker continued his dominance with a 30-point performance on the No. 2 Michigan State Spartans and came away with a upset 70-67.

Over the last three games, Walker scored 103-points, averaging 34.3 points per game. Not to mention, shooting 55 percent from the field.

The one-man wrecking show of Walker has the Huskies undefeated, and dangerous. UConn is still undefeated after playing the No. 2 team in the nation, and has the chance to knock off another top-10 opponent in the No. 9 Kentucky Wildcats.
