Haven't we met before?
That's what UConn and Cincinnati are thinking when they face off again after an meeting on February 27th.
In that Big East game, the Huskies prevailed in Cincinnati, 67-59. Jim Calhoun's team received 17 points from Jeremy Lamb, to go along with the team's 10-19 shooting performance from three-point range.
Tonight, they will take on a Bearcat team that have won four of their last five games. Cincinnati have a star player in Yancy Gates who leads the team in points per game (11.9) and rebounds (7).
The Huskies have a star player of their own: Kemba Walker.
The junior guard is deserving of Player of the Year consideration. He is averaging an astounding 23.5 points per game, and more importantly has hit several clutch shots.
Indeed, the Huskies' success often hinges on Walker's performance.
When the two teams played on February 27, Walker dropped 11 of his 16 points in the second half on Cincinnati while a courtside fan taunted him.
The winner of this game plays San Diego State.
