ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Kemba Walker scored 22 of his 36 points in another dynamic second-half performance, and Connecticut moved to the brink of its fourth trip to the Final Four with a 74-67 victory over San Diego State in the West regional semifinals Thursday night.

Freshman Jeremy Lamb added 24 points and hit a clutch 3-pointer with 1:43 left for the third-seeded Huskies (29-9), who needed five wins in five days to capture the Big East tournament before advancing to an NCAA regional final for the 10th time.

D.J. Gay scored 16 points for the second-seeded Aztecs (34-3), who couldn't quite catch up to Walker during a scintillating second-half stretch run.

Walker scored 12 consecutive points for UConn in that late duel with Gay, whose 3-pointer cut the Huskies' lead to 65-64 with 2:53 left. Lamb replied with his 3 before an emphatic last-minute dunk.
