The last question for Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller at Thursday’s postgame press conference was about UA’s regional final opponent, UConn.
“I don’t know a lot about UConn,” he said. “But I do know Kemba Walker.”
That would be the junior point guard who is an All-American … who scored 36 points in the Sweet 16 against San Diego State … who had 33 points in an NCAA Tournament win over Cincinnati … who had 12 assists and nearly a triple-double in an tourney win over Bucknell … who led the Huskies to five wins in five days to win the Big East Tournament … who is averaging 27.1 points in the team’s eight-game winning streak.
Yeah, that Kemba Walker.
“Our goal was to try to contain him,” said San Diego State forward Billy White. “You know, he’s almost impossible to stop.”
