Georgetown Vs. UCONN: Kemba Walker Scores 31 Points As Huskies Win

The Georgetown Hoyas are good. But tonight Kemba Walker was better.

The star point guard for the Connecticut Huskies had 31 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds in a dominating performance in this important Big East matchup between two of the top teams in the nation. 21 of Walker's points came in the second half as he turned it on and took over. There wasn't a single player wearing dark blue who could stop Walker when he drove to the basket. Walker shot over 56% from the field and added four free throws.

The Huskies took the lead early in the second half and never looked back, closing out Georgetown with a final score of 78-70 and ending the team's winning streak at eight-games.

The Hoyas did well to keep pace with Walker, but fell short in the end. Chris Wright led the team with 19 points, making five of his nine three-point attempts. Jason Clark, Austin Freeman, and Hollis Thompson all scored in double-figures for the Hoyas, but it wasn't enough.

Jamal Coombs-McDaniel added 23 points and six rebounds for UCONN on an impressive 8-11 shooting.
