Big East Championship Game 2011, Louisville Vs. UConn: Cardinals Start Second Half With Intensity

Both teams are sloppy and shooting poorly to start the second half of the 2011 Big East Championship game, but the intensity has certainly been ramped up, especially by Louisville. The Cardinals are doing to UConn exactly what they did last night against Notre Dame by pressuring UConn and upping the pace of the game to start the second half. This is exactly how Louisville got back into the game against Notre Dame, and they've taken the lead against UConn. It's 40-38 at the under 16 timeout, with 15:52 left on the clock.

UConn look like they're in serious danger of a collapse, and they're going to need Kemba Walker to step up soon. He's had a decent game, but not insane Kemba Walker-esque. For most players, even top scorers, today would be a slightly above average day. Walker is a different story, and he's failing to live up to expectations so far. The fact that 5-10 shooting and 10 points after 25 minutes isn't good enough is a testament to how amazing Walker has been this year.
