Maui, HI (Sports Network) - Kemba Walker poured in 29 points and Connecticut completed its improbable run through the Maui Invitational by beating eighth- ranked Kentucky, 84-67, in the championship game.

Alex Oriakhi added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Huskies (5-0), who beat Wichita State on Monday before knocking off second-ranked Michigan State on Tuesday. Niels Giffey had 14 points and Shabazz Napier 12 for UConn, which shot a sizzling 58.8 percent (30-of-51) from the field.

Terrence Jones had 24 points and Darius Miller 15 for the Wildcats (4-1), who were in the championship game in Maui for the first time since 1993.

It was a spectacular tournament for Walker, who had scored at least 30 in each of his previous three games. He helped the Huskies win the tournament for the second time, as UConn beat Gonzaga in the 2005 title contest.
