That was a classic college basketball game.
The UConn Huskies, supposedly in a rebuilding year, just upset the No. 2 Michigan State Spartans 70-67. Junior Kemba Walker was phenomenal all evening. His 30 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals led the way for the Huskies. Walker now has 61 points in his two games in Maui thus far.
Walker just simply dominated a game in which Michigan State’s whole gameplan was geared to stop him.
For the Spartans, Draymond Green played very well. Green scored 22 points, grabbed 12 boards, dished 5 assists and had 3 blocks. Green didn’t even start tonight but was the best player on the floor for Michigan State.
This was just a fantastic early season game. Kudos to both teams for playing at such a high level.
UConn will face the winner of the second semifinal tonight, as No. 8 Kentucky and No. 13 Washington face off in about 30 minutes.
