Kemba Walker is in the Sweet Sixteen after another impressive performance. Walker scored a game-high 33 points and triggered a second half run that gave UConn control en route to a 69-58 win over Cincinnati in the round of 32.
Cincinnati hung around as UConn struggled to score in the opening minutes of the second half, allowing the Bearcats to crawl back from an eight-point halftime deficit. After Cincinnati closed the deficit to one, Walker took over, scoring seven points in quick succession to effectively put the Bearcats away.
Though Walker dominated the scoring for the Huskies, Jeremy Lamb complimented the dynamic guard well, adding 14 points. Rashad Bishop led the way for Cincinnati, finishing with a team-high 22 points.
UConn moves on to face San Diego State, double overtime winners earlier in the day, in the Sweet Sixteen.
