Jim Calhoun, UConn Seek to Defend National Title Without Kemba Walker, Appear Up to Challenge


If the UConn Huskies are to repeat as national champions, they'll be forced to do so without Kemba Walker, who was perhaps the best player in the country last season.

Walker, of course, was selected ninth overall in this year's draft by the Charlotte Bobcats. But even though the UConn standout will be missed, head coach Jim Calhoun and Co. are confident they'll be able to continue playing at a high level.

NESN's Jayme Parker caught up with the Huskies, and they emphasized the team's depth and experience when discussing why they'll once again be a force to be reckoned with.
