Kemba Walker Game Winner Vs Pitt

For this college basketball season, UConn's Kemba Walker has become the king of the buzzer beater. After winning two games in the closing seconds in the regular season against Texas and Villanova, he saved his best buzzer beater for today's 76-74 victory over Pittsburgh in the Big East Men's Basketball Championship Quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden.

With the score tied at 74, Walker brought the ball into the frontcourt with 12 seconds to play. He utilized a key screen and roll to end up having Pitt center Gary McGhee guarding him at the top of the key. Then, Walker pulled off one of the best moves of the season. He went to his right, dribbling with his right hand. Then, he did a crossover with his left hand. Next, he faked with a jab step forward. Instead of going up with the shot, he stepped back and hit the game-winner while McGhee was falling down. Fortunately, his ankles weren't broken. To all of the NBA scouts that are doubting Walker's game because of his lack of height, you are all idiots.

UConn moves on to the semifinals to play Syracuse tomorrow evening.
