Kemba Walker strikes again.
Sometimes Kemba Walker does some things that make you shake your head in anger. He has times when he doesn't want to share the ball, doesn't trust his teammates enough and wants to do everything himself. That has gotten the team into trouble at times.
But sometimes Kemba Walker does things that make you shake your head and just say "wow!"
In Connecticut's game against Pittsburgh in the Big East quarterfinals on Thursday, Walker had one of those "wow!" moments.
With the game tied at 74 and 15 seconds left in regulation, Walker got the ball on an inbounds pass. He stood at the top of the key for what seemed like an eternity before making a move that broke the ankles of Pitt's Gary McGhee, then he stepped back and let the shot go from just inside the three-point arc.
The buzzer went off and the ball hit the bottom of the net.
Connecticut advances to the semifinals of the Big East tournament as a result of this victory. They are playing their best basketball since December-January, when they were ranked in the top 10.
This UConn team will be dangerous come tournament time because they have a player like Kemba Walker. He needs to trust his teammates more, which he was able to do in this game, but they have a lot of what you need to win come tournament time.
