from the Hartford Courant...
Kemba Walker did it in so many ways. He was calm and cool, swishing a three-pointer with just under four minutes. Then he was a disruptive ball of instinct and energy, stepping into the lane of a Rashad Bishop pass for a steal that set up Roscoe Smith for a dunk that just about sealed a trip to California.
The longer the game went, the more Walker left his sneaker prints all over it — just like those sneaker prints all over the UConn record book. Walker scored 33 points and set a UConn single-season scoring record as the third-seeded Huskies defeated No. 6 Cincinnati 69-58 in an NCAA Tournament West Regional game at the Verizon Center.
UConn (28-9) advances to the Sweet 16 and will face No. 2 San Diego State Thursday in Anaheim.
The Huskies, who also won the regular season meeting with Cincinnati, have won seven in a row and are two victories from the Final Four.
