Walker's jumper lifts UConn over Texas 82-81 in OT

Kemba Walker, the nation's leading scorer,
made a 15-foot jumper with 5 seconds left in overtime to lift No. 8
Connecticut to a 82-81 victory over No. 12 Texas on Saturday.
The Longhorns quickly moved the ball to midcourt before calling
timeout, but freshman Cory Joseph's juggling 3-pointer after the
inbound pass fell well short.
Walker finished with 22 points against a tough defensive effort
by Texas that shut him down for long stretches of the game. But
Walker came up with the big shot when the Huskies needed it,
shooting over Dogus Balbay for the winner.
Connecticut (12-2) ended Texas' 27-game home winning streak
against non-conference opponents. Jordan Hamilton and J'Covan Brown
each scored 20 points for the Longhorns (12-3).
