"In the final 16 games through the loss to North Carolina in the ACC Tournament Walker averaged 14.7 points per game, shot 36.2 percent from the three and 79.5 percent from the foul line. He was steady and at times spectacular but it’s debatable if he truly lived up to the hype.”"

Walker was good, but not the superstar player he was hyped to be. He was a steady player once Bruce Brown went down for the season. He was the Hurricanes go to player but never seemed truly capable of being the kind of player able to take over a game.

Walker said in the post-game on Thursday he was proud of the way he and his teammates played this season.

Miami began the season with a lot of expectations. The Hurricanes were ranked 13th in the nation in the preseason polls. The lofty ranking was attributed mainly to Brown, Walker and Huell teaming together.

Huell played well until Brown was hurt. His game was inconsistent once Brown was lost. Walker took off just before Brown’s injury.

Walker and Brown never really seemed to develop a chemistry. It could have been because of his injury over the summer. Canes fans will be left wondering what could have been with a healthy team.

Michelle Kaufman of the Miami Herald said Walker plans to take some time off, talk to his family and coaches, consider his options and then make a decision. Asked which way he is leaning Walker said: “Lord knows, I’m not sure yet.”
