San Diego State has taken a gamble with 7:49 to go in the first half against UCONN in a Sweet 16 matchup. Coach Steve Fisher decided to put Kahwi Leonard back into the game with two fouls, taking a risk that Leonard could continue his strong early play.
He has, thus far. Leonard drew a foul on Jeremy Lamb in the post, then got free for a slam dunk on the next play. The Aztects would be leading, but Lamb responded with a fallaway three with the shot clock running down to tie the score at 17. Lamb has eight points, while Kemba Walker has come alive by hitting his last two field goals -- a layup off a slice cut and a stepback jumper in the corner.
