Kemba powers UCONN into Big East finals
I thought that the best player was Ben Hansbrough of Notre Dame. So did the coaches in picking him as Player of the Year. It is reported by some that Mick Cronin of Cincinatti did not even vote Walker First Team All-Big East. Absurd. Hansbrough is a great player and will be a great pro. He has a bigger body than Walker and might be a better pro. Right now no one is playing better basketball in the NCAA’s than Walker.
All Walker did last night was score 33 points,grab 12 rebounds and dish out 5 assists in leading the no. 9 seed Huskies to a 76-71 win over favored Syracuse.
UConn could be the first team ever to win five Big East Tournament games in five days if they win in the final tonight.
Walker still has another year of eligibility but will graduate this year and go on to the NBA. He is projected as around a no. 12 first round pick. Many know that the Knicks want him.
The Huskies right now look like a no. 5 seed in the NCAA’s and will be a tough out in the first two rounds.
Syracuse suffered yet another disappointing loss,largely because of their inability to hit free throws in overtime.They should be a no. 6 seed in the NCAA’s.
