The star guards for UConn and Louisville, Kemba Walker and Preston Knowles, are letting everyone in Madison Square Garden know that they are the stars late in the game, taking over for their respective teams. The 2011 Big East Championship looks like it's set to go down to the wire, with the two teams exchanging blows back and forth and neither team giving in. At the under four minute break, with 2:12 to go, UConn are holding onto a 63-62 lead.
Walker had his most impressive play of the game when he powered his way to the rim, drawing a foul and making his lay-up. He would go on to complete the three point play at the free throw line. That lay-up was the first field goal in 23 minutes for Walker when he scored it with 4:56 remaining in regulation time. Knowles has made Louisville's last two baskets, both on long range jump shots.
