Signs Walker Won’t Be Back. . .

STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut junior guard Kemba Walker will be honored during this year’s senior day ceremonies at Gampel Pavilion, an indication the Husky star is not planning to return next season.

Walker will participate in ceremonies Saturday, along with seniors Charles Okwandu and Donnell Beverly before the No. 16 Huskies (21-8, 9-8 Big East) take on No. 8 Notre Dame (24-5, 13-4) in the team’s regular-season finale.

The school says Walker is scheduled to finish his degree this summer and plans to march in May graduation ceremonies.

Walker, a candidate for national player of the year, is averaging almost 23 points per game and is projected by many as a first-round NBA draft pick.

Walker has said he will make a decision about his future once UConn’s season is complete.

    I think Kembo would make a fine CT state employee. The fish hatchery is always looking for someone edumecated with a college degree like Kembo has.
    Hell, if he don’t make it in the pros, I can get him in at the furniture store where I work, maybe cleaning up used furniture.
