50 Greatest Players in UConn men’s basketball history: 50-1

KEMBA WALKER1. Kemba Walker (2008-11), 6-1, G. Take yourself back to March 2011, when Kemba and the Kids went on one of the greatest runs in NCAA Tournament history.

The Huskies won five games in five days in the best conference in America, then went out and won six more in a row to capture the NCAA title. Walker was unbelievable, averaging 30 points per game in the Big East tournament and 29 in the NCAAs. He virtually carried the Huskies to the national championship by himself.

That’s the definition of a great player. And that’s why Kemba will go down as the greatest Husky in history.
