About Kemba Walker

Walker attended Rice High School in Harlem, New York. In his junior year, Walker played against Simeon Career Academy and senior guard Derrick Rose in Madison Square Garden in a 53–51 win. During Walker’s senior year he averaged 18.2 points per game and 5.3 assists per game, earning him a spot on the prestigious McDonald’s All-American Team. Walker played for the New York Gauchos AAU basketball program with fellow Big East players Jordan TheodoreDarryl “Truck” Bryant, Devin Hill, and Danny Jennings. The team went on to finish #1 in the nation.

Considered a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Walker was listed as the No. 5 point guard and the No. 14 player in the nation in 2008.

During his freshman year at UConn, Walker played in every game and was named to the Big East All-Rookie Team. He helped the Huskies achieve a number one seed in the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Despite starting in only two games he averaged 25.5 minutes per game, far more than any regular non-starter. He also helped the Huskies go to the 2009 Final Four with a 23-point effort in the Elite Eight vs Missouri.

Walker played and started all 34 games in 2009–10 season. He contributed 14.6 points per game and led the Huskies in scoring for the eighth time in the last nine games of the season with 18 points at Virginia Tech. Walker was named First Team USBWA All-District.

Connecticut earned a 4 seed in 2010 National Invitation Tournament, but fell short to Virginia Tech as the Huskies finished a disappointing season going 18–16 (7–11) in conference play.

Walker rose to national prominence in his junior year, twelve games into his junior campaign, Walker was the nation’s leading scorer, averaging 26.7 points per game. In addition, he averaged five rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Walker appeared on one of the six regional covers Sports Illustrated.

Walker was drafted ninth overall by the Charlotte Bobcats (now Charlotte Hornets) in the 2011 NBA draft.
