Kemba Walker records triple-double as UConn cruises past UMBC 94-61

Kemba Walker is good. I though I should reminder you just in case, you know, you'd been living the past three weeks with your eyes closed and your fingers in my ears.....in a cave.....on Mars. UConn's junior point guard posted his first career triple-double tonight, scoring 24 points, grabbing 13 rebounds and dishing out 10 assists.

I wasn't able to see the game, but that won't stop me from marveling at Walker's performance. Off the top of my head, I can recall three Huskies posting triple-doubles before -- Donyell Marshall, Emeka Okafor and Hasheem Thabeet -- so yeah, Kemba's good.

I'm sure those who saw the game can fill in the blanks in the comments, but it looks like Walker got the help he was missing earlier in the week against UNH. Five other Huskies scored in double figures, including three of the key freshmen. I especially like seeing the 3-point numbers. The Huskies were 12-23 from behind the arc and Niels Giffey was 3-4. I'm also happy to see Jeremy Lamb grabbed 6 boards to go with his 11 points in his return to the starting lineup.

No one expected UConn to lose this game, but it sure is a relief to see that they won it going away.
