Last season, the Connecticut Huskies pulled off one of the most impressive postseason finished in college basketball history.

After just finishing tied for ninth in the Big East, only a player like Kemba Walker could have jump-started that squad and lead them to the top.

A 9-9 conference record was unimpressive, but the Huskies entered the Big East Tournament with swagger and walked away with some huge wins over Pitt, Louisville, and Syracuse.

Walker took over and piloted UConn onto their seventh Big East Tournament Title.

In the Big Dance, Walker was once again the leader of this strong Huskies squad. No one seemed capable of shutting him down. Storied programs such as Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Arizona fell, allowing UConn to claim their third National Championship since 1999.

Superstars like Kemba Walker are few and far between.

But, this season there are many candidates who can replace him in the spotlight as one of the league's best. Who out there really has the skills to break tournament scoring records? 

Does anyone have ice in their veins that is cold enough to nail game winning shots consistently? 

I believe so.

Here are my top ten players with the potential to be this year's Kemba Walker.
