2011 Big East Tournament Scores: Pitt To Play Connecticut In First Tournament Matchup

We’ll have an update on the entire day later tonight, but it seemed worthwhile to note that Kemba Walker has led the Connecticut Huskies to a 79-62 win over Georgetown, meaning that UConn will face Pitt tomorrow at 12:00 PM in Pitt’s first Big East Tournament game.

Walker, who is averaging 23 points per game this season, scored 28 against the Hoyas, while Jason Clark had 23 points and Austin Freeman had 20 for Georgetown.

Pitt last played the Huskies on December 27 in a game the Panthers won, 78-63. Walker scored 31 points in that game, but the rest of the Huskies only scored 32 points.

Since then, UConn has beaten Georgetown (twice), Texas, Cincinnati, Marquette and Villanova, while losing to Notre Dame (twice), Louisville (twice), West Virginia, Syracuse, Marquette, and St. John’s. Walker and the Huskies will be a tough matchup for the Panthers, but that’s almost a given when you’re two rounds deep into a tournament in a very tough Big East field.
