Dan Woike asked NBA players to tell us about the best game in their basketball career. This week: Kemba Walker
March 11, 2011: UConn 76, Syracuse 71 (OT)
33 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, six steals
Charlotte guard Kemba Walker scored 60 points in November — the most in an NBA game this season — but it wasn’t Walker’s best game ever. He won an NCAA tournament title, leading Connecticut to an unlikely crown, but his best game ever didn’t come in that run either. No, Walker’s came during one of the most challenging weeks of his career — the 2011 Big East Conference tournament, when he led the Huskies to five wins in five days, an overtime victory over Syracuse in the semifinals standing out the most.
