STORRS, Conn. -- Former Monacan standout and current UConn star Megan Walker has been named the American Athletic Conference (AAC) player of the year.

Walker, a junior, led the conference in scoring (19.5 ppg) and helped lead the Huskies to an undefeated conference record at 16-0 and a 26-3 record overall.

Walker was also named to the AAC All-Conference First Team, along with two Husky teammates.

The 2017 Monacan grad is no stranger to accolades.

While with the Lady Chiefs, Walker was named Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year after leading Monacan to their third straight state title and a perfect season at 30-0.

Walker and the Huskies will now try to capture their seventh-straight AAC Tournament title before leaving the conference to rejoin the Big East.
