Kemba Walker scored 18 points Saturday night to lift Connecticut to its 10th straight victory since finishing off a .500 Big East regular season, a 56-55 win over cold-shooting Kentucky that moved the Huskies a victory away from their third NCAA title.
The third-seeded Huskies will face No. 8 Butler, a 70-62 winner over 11th-seeded VCU in the first semifinal, on Monday.
