Kemba Walker, junior guard for the Huskies, played a huge role in the win against Cincinnati to make it to the Sweet 16. Scoring 33 points, six rebounds and five assists Walker was on fire. Fourteen of his 33 points were his free throws, of which he didn't miss any all night. 

Walker was named the Big East Tournament's Most Outstanding Player after scoring 130 points in five games. Averaging 25.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game in the postseason, Walker is playing a major part in his team's successes. Cincinnati was Walker's 10th 30-point game of the season. 

What can be expected next of Kemba Walker? After an almost triple-double against Bucknell and scoring 33-points against Cincinnati he is on a roll.

On March 24 the Connecticut Huskies will take on the San Diego State Aztecs to see who will progress to the Elite Eight. Let's see what Walker does next.
