Walker said the biggest difference in the Huskies’ supporting cast as of late has been confidence. And that doesn’t just include Napier, Smith and Lamb, but players such as forwards Alex Oriakhi and Charles Okwandu and guard Jamal Coombs-McDaniel, as well.

"Confidence is a huge part," Lamb said Tuesday during the Huskies' pre-Final Four media day in Hartford. "I think it's taken us to the next level. Because you know Kemba's gonna go out and get 30 points, but if he doesn't have help, then we can't win games."

UConn receiver Isiah Moore Suspended -
