Triple-Double for K.W.

Is there anything Kemba Walker can't do?

With 7:28 left to play, Walker hit Niels Giffey for a 3-pointer. It was Walker's 10th assist of the game and it made him just the eighth player in UConn history to notch a triple-double.

Walker finishes with 24 points, a career-high 13 rebounds and 10 assists. His 24 points are the most scored in a triple-double effort by a Husky. His previous career-best rebounding effort was 11, in the famous six-overtime loss to Syracuse in the 2009 Big East tournament. It took him 53 minutes to do his damage in that game but just 30 tonight.

Sorry, this is unrelated to your latest topic...but....you once asked "whatever happened to Don Calhoun" ex Patriot. Don is a good friend of mine and I can tell you that he is alive and well in his hometown of Wichita Ks, still married to Donna, has raised 5 children and has over a dozen grandchildren. In 2009 he scored a personal Trifecta and was inducted into the North High School Hall of Fame, The Wichita Sports Hall of Fame, and the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame. Although not an NFL Hall of Famer or even close to one, his performance, conditioning, attitude and tenure was very, very much above the average. Certainly the type of individual that deserves to be held up as an example to the local youth and local sports organizations. Check out www.wichitahof.com/Inductees.htm and www.kshof.org/siteresources/apps/records/halloffamer.asp?id=182
There is also a video of his induction intro and his acceptance speech for the Kansas Sports Hall of fame at www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B-nDrTcWGs (cut and paste should take you directly there).

Sorry for the interuption,
Respectfuly, Keith Pierce.

Wow, had to go back in the archives to find that Don Calhoun reference. Thanks for the response though, Keith. Better late than never!

Hey David,

This is off topic as well but I was just wondering if there is any recent news on Wolf. I read your past posts on him and it seemed as if he would red-shirt this year to rehab his knee and get in better shape.

If Wolf doesn't play this year how do you think UConn will be size-wise when the Big East starts? Besides Alex, UConn lacks real depth at the 4 and 5 especially in the rebounding department. If Alex is off the court for extended periods of time UConn's lack of size may be extremely exposed.

Just wanted to know your thoughts.

Check out the entry I posted at the top of the blog: Wolf is apparently ready to join the program some time over the next 8-10 days.
