It was an eventful first week of 2015 for the former Huskies in the NBA. Kemba Walker had a big night Wednesday, scoring 31 points, including a game-winning basket against New Orleans. It was Walker's third 30-point game in a row for the Bobcats, who come to the Garden to play the hapless...

I think that all fans of the UConn Huskies will remember what Kemba Walker did against the Pittsburgh Panthers in the 2011 Big East Tournament to beat them. Well now that he’s been in the NBA for some time, his crossover has only gotten nastier. Case in point, watch what he does to the Chicago Bulls Nikola Mirotic on Wednesday night.
The annual Jim Calhoun Charity All-Star Game is taking place this evening. Various members of past UConn teams, including Ray Allen, Shabazz Napier, and Kemba Walker, are expected to play in the event, which starts at 7:30 p.m. E.T. at Mohegan Sun Arena. Walker, who won a national title with the Huskies in 2011, will be wearing special UConn- themed Under Armour shoes during the...
In 2011, Kemba Walker was inducted into UConn’s “Huskies of Honor” the day after leading UConn to a national championship, and today Shabazz Napier received the same immediate honor.

College Basketball ended last night with the UCONN Huskies taking the title home. This year’s NCAA tournament was as competitive as I’ve ever seen it and it was such an even playing field. From the kid from Mercer doing the “Nae Nae” dance to Shabazz Napier doing his best impersonation of Kemba Walker there were many memories during this tournament run. This tournament was...
Kemba Walker continues to rep his Huskies. UConn’s run to the Final Four this year may seem improbable, but Husky fans are growing used to their program making surprise runs into early April. UConn is only three years removed from an eerily similar run to a National Championship. Connecticut last won the National Championship in 2011, when the Kemba Walker-led Huskies knocked...
Comparison of Shabazz Napier and Kemba Walker's Final Four runs for the UConn Huskies.
In 2011, point guard Kemba Walker put UConn on his back and led them to a National Championship. This year, his former teammate Shabazz Napier is doing his best Kemba-impersonation. During this afternoon’s UConn win over Michigan State which sends the Huskies to the Final Four, Walker sent out a tweet that looks pretty accurate right now. Best PG in the country. Shabazz Napier...
