Everybody's All-American, Pt. II

UConn junior guard Kemba Walker took home another All-America honor today after being named to the Sporting News First Team. This marks the second All-America honor this season for Walker after previously being named to the First Team by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

Walker is one of only two players (Norris Cole – Cleveland State) in the NCAA to average 20 points, five rebounds and four assists this season. The Bronx, N.Y. native has led UConn to a 28-9 record and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Walker has filled the stat sheet averaging 23.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.9 steals per game.

Walker has moved up the UConn record book in several categories throughout the season. With 33 points against Cincinnati on Thursday in the NCAA Third Round, Walker moved into first on the single-season scoring list with 875 points, passing all-time great Donyell Marshall (’94).
