'Horrible' Oriakhi, Kemba on Video

Alex Oriakhi knew it was coming.

When Kemba Walker was asked Friday about what he remembered most about UConn's prior meeting with Cincinnati on Feb. 27 in the Queen City, he dead-panned: "What sticks out to me is Alex played horrible. That really sticks out to me. And Jeremy (Lamb) played great."

Everyone laughed, though Walker -- with Lamb to his immediate right and Oriakhi to his far right -- was somewhat serious. Or, at least, he wasn't wrong: Oriakhi had just three points and three rebounds in that game, one of his worst outputs of the season.
