Walk completed her junior season with averages of 14.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals for the Raiders, who posted a 24-8 record and advanced to the NAIA Championships Round of 32.
A season ago, Walk became the 17th player in SOU women’s basketball history to earn mention or land on an All-America team. The 5-foot-11 Eugene product did it again by carrying the Raiders down the stretch, posting nine of her 10 double-doubles during the second half of the season. In four postseason games, she averaged 17 points and 8.8 rebounds while shooting 54.5 percent from the field (24-of-44) and 47.6 percent from 3 (10-of-21).
She also dropped in the game-winning bucket with a couple of seconds left in the Raiders’ Round of 64 game against Wayland Baptist (Texas), completing a 29-point comeback.
During conference play, Walk was the CCC’s only player to rank among the top-six in both points and rebounds. She was top-15 in shooting percentages from the field, the 3-point line and the free-throw line, too.
Walk became the 20th member of SOU’s 1,000-point club in February. She’ll enter her senior season No. 12 in rebounds (659) and No. 14 in points (1,164) on the Raiders’ all-time lists.
