"LONNIE WALKER IV: “After they made the shot, I mean, it’s definitely a dagger to the heart. It for surely hurts because your teammates, such as JaQuon who’s a senior, you come to the realization it’s your last game with them. It definitely hurts seeing a shot like that go in, but I’m proud of my team and how we fought and how we played. Hats off to them, and hope they do well in the tournament.”"

Walker’s free throw attempt was something out of a movie. It felt like it was in slow motion. To paraphrase Lebron James when he joined the Heat, it bounced not once, not twice….three times before it bounced off the rim. Walker discussed the agony of watching his free throw miss.

"“My free throw didn’t go as planned, it always goes in, and once he released the ball, it went into slow motion and the basketball gods went their way…They knocked down shots. I was on the left side of the corner, right on the dude who passed the ball to him. I watched him elevate and get the shot off. It’s a dagger, goes straight to your heart.”"

Walker is likely to leave for the NBA after his only season in Coral Gables. He spoke about his season with the Hurricanes. Walker confirmed on Friday that he is taking his time to make a decision. It would a shock if he returns.
