UConn Men’s Basketball
Connecticut has received a verbal commitment from a 6-foot-10 forward, just as another officially transferred from the school.
The NCAA on Friday turned down the University of Connecticut’s request for a waiver that would allow its men’s basketball team to play in the 2013 national championship tournament.
Kemba Walker, the nation’s leading scorer, made a 15-foot jumper with 5 seconds left in overtime to lift No. 8 Connecticut to a 82-81 victory over No. 12 Texas on Saturday.
Kemba Walker scored 21 points and freshman Jeremy Lamb had 17 to lead Connecticut to a 103-57 exhibition win over Bridgeport on Sunday.
