Kemba Walker Selected by the Charlotte Bobcats with the 9th Pick of the 2011 NBA Draft

After the ritual booing of David Stern ensued, the 2011 NBA Draft began. Kyrie Irving from Duke was taken first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Connecticut's Kemba Walker was taken at #9 by the Charlotte Bobcats.

Last season, Walker carried the Huskies on an amazing run of wins. UConn went through the Big East tournament and then the NCAA tournament without a loss to win the Big East tournament title and then national title. Walker averaged 23.5 points per game during the 2010-2011 season.

Head over to Rufus on Fire to get full coverage on their newest player. Congrats to Kemba Walker, the first Big East pick in the 2011 NBA Draft!

Walker was the 10th Connecticut player drafted in the top 10 of the NBA Draft.

We'll keep updating you on the Big East selections but make sure you check out the SB Nation NBA Draft Hub for total coverage of the draft. Make sure you stop by SB Nation New York to see Walker's reaction to being drafted.
