The Big East tournament is commonly known as the most exciting and challenging of all of the conference tournaments. So when one player leads his team to five wins in five days, it's obvious that man is something special.
Kemba Walker redefines special.
UConn was originally slated for a seven seed in March Madness and suddenly shot up to a three, with a number of ESPN analysts picking the Huskies to make the Final Four. The only thing rising higher than UConn's ranking is Mr. Walker's draft stock.
He started the 2010-2011 season as a tweener who was not even guaranteed a first-round pick. Now it's just a matter of which lottery team wants to snag him off the board first.
But Walker isn't the only player whose draft stock has been fluctuating. Players from all over the country are looking forward to the NCAA tournament to raise their prospects further or stop the bleeding. It's a race to see who will get the No. 1 spot in the NBA Draft.
Will "Kemba Walker" be the first name David Stern calls in Madison Square Garden?
