Kemba Deserves to be NCAA POY

UConn's star guard, Kemba Walker in my eyes is the best player in the NCAA this year, and he should be the NCAA Player Of the Year.

Walker's performance in the Big East Tournament alone should launch him to the top of the list of Player Of the Year candidates. He led his team to a conference tournament crown, and helped his team do what no one has ever done in a conference tournament; win five games in five days to be named champions.

He averaged 26 points, and set a conference tournament record in minutes played with 190 total minutes. He also made one of the biggest game-winning shots of the tournament against the no. 1 seed in the tournament, the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Not to mention, Walker put the young UConn Huskies on his back from the start of the season and took them to a no. 19 ranking in the top 25 Coaches' poll.

Ever since the Huskies won the 2011 Maui Invitational earlier in the year (which included wins against Michigan St and Texas), Walker and the Huskies have shattered many analysts and fans' expectations for them.

Walker is third in the nation in scoring with 24.0 points a game. His track record and stats has done more than enough to state his case as the best player in the nation.
