Big East Tournament 2011: Kemba Walker Cannot Be Slowed As UCONN Leads Louisville 21-10 At 10-Minute Mark

Kemba Walker didn't need to score a single point in the Championship game to set the record for the most points ever in a single Big east Tournament. Its a record he already holds. But that won't stop him from scoring anyway. Walker has eight of his team's 21 points in the first 10 minutes as the Connecticut Huskies lead the Louisville Cardinals by 10 midway through the first half.

The team has been feeding Walker the ball every possession, and why not? The guy is currently turning in one of the greatest performances in Tournament history.

Jeremy Lamb has seven points for the Huskies, including a big three-pointer to extend his team's lead to eight.

The two teams are tied in rebounds, but shot selection has been the key. Louisville is shooting under 33% from the field in the first 10 minutes, while Connecticut is over 50% in what is becoming a fast-paced game.
