  • The biggest name talked about in college basketball this year has been UConn Junior G Kemba Walker who leads all scorers with 25.6 PPG and leads his team with 3.8 APG.
  • UConn Senior C Alex Oriakhi leads the team with 9.2 RPG and is 2nd with 10.9 PPG.

Yet another tough Big East basketball pick on the day. Villanova has played 5 road games, but this is by far their toughest road test yet. They have played 3 ranked teams, but none of them ranked inside the top 15. UConn did hit a rough patch in their season when they traveled to #6 Pittsburgh then 2 games later traveled to #15 Notre Dame. UConn has arguably the best player in college basketball in Kemba Walker, so this one is very well worth watching.
