Maui Invitational: UConn Upsets Michigan State, 70-67

Maui, HI (Sports Network) - Kemba Walker scored 30 points and Alex Oriakhi added 15 points and 16 rebounds as Connecticut knocked off second-ranked Michigan State, 70-67, in the semifinals at the 2010 Maui Invitational.

Roscoe Smith supplied eight points and eight boards for the Huskies (4-0), who will take on the winner of the ensuing matchup between eight-ranked Kentucky and 13th-ranked Washington in the championship game on Wednesday night.

Draymond Green scored 22 points and pulled down 12 boards and Durrell Summers chipped in 13 points for the Spartans (3-1), who fell to 1-2 in semifinal tilts at the prestigious early-season tournament.

UConn evened the all-time series at two apiece and somewhat atoned for a loss to the Spartans in the national semifinals in 2009.
