West Region: UConn Huskies (3) vs. Bucknell Bison (14) Thurs. March 17, 2011 7:20 p.m. EST

A few years ago, the UConn Huskies (3) were arguably the best team in college basketball as they had some talented players and of course head coach Jim Calhoun calling the shots from the sidelines. This season the Huskies weren’t thought to have much of an impact in the Big East Conference or the 2011 NCAA Tournament, but that hasn’t been the case as UConn has played extremely well as of late and might have a shot at going the distance in the Big Dance.

One of the main reasons for the Huskies success this season has been the emergence of arguably the best player in college basketball in Kemba Walker. Not only is Walker a legitimate candidate for the Player of the Year, but he has also been unstoppable as of late with some late game heroics that could be compared to the likes of Kobe Bryant of the two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers.

Obviously, comparing Walker to Kobe might be a bit of a stretch, but in terms of college basketball this kid is about as good as it gets right now.

On Thursday night, Kemba Walker will be looking to lead his UConn Huskies (3) to yet another victory by trying to get the best of the Bucknell Bison (14). As of right now, the Huskies are favored to win, and for good reason, with a -10 point spread.
