Yes, that's right. UConn.
Kemba Walker's the hottest thing this side of February. So is the entire Huskies team, having set a record with five wins in five days to win the Big East conference tournament.
But let's rewind for just a second. There's a reason why UConn had to win five games in five days.
It's because they finished ninth in the Big East regular season standings.
What's that, you say? UConn only lost to Big East teams this season?
True. But guess who the Huskies will likely face in the second round? Cincinnati—a Big East team.
Rewind again back to February 22, when Cincinnati traveled to Storrs to take on UConn. The Bearcats—with one of the stingiest defenses in all of college basketball—held Walker to five points in the first half. Yes, UConn escaped with an eight-point victory, but that's not the point.
If anyone's going to stop UConn, it will be a defensive-minded team that can can shut down Kemba Walker. Oh, what's that again? Cincinnati gives up only 58 points per game?
Sounds like the perfect storm to me.
