With both teams being undefeated, the winner of the Celtics-Wolves match up would advance to play in the National playoffs. Also, the leader of the Celtics is 6-foot-5 point guard Javaris Crittenton, a major target of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, who was once Walker's favorite team.
At the end of the game it was Walker, not Crittenton, who left impressing those in attendance as the Wolves advanced 65-59 behind his stellar play.
"I was looking forward to this game a lot because I like Georgia Tech a lot, and they said they like him a little more than me," Walker said. "I just want to play against all the good guards.
"I think I played pretty good. I got the 'W' and that's all that matters."
Walker played better than "pretty good." An outstanding floor general, the 5-foot-11 standout finished with 25 points and five assists while knocking down all nine free throws he attempted. He controlled tempo all game and did a great job of directing traffic and running his team.
Playing in a structured offense for an AAU team, it's obvious that Walker would be comfortable in any system and has all the traits necessary to excel as a point guard on the next level. If he continues to play this well, he'll have his pick of schools and at the moment he's mainly looking at four programs.
"Well, I like NC State a lot," Walker said. "I'm looking at Wake Forest, I'm looking at Miami, and Ohio State. That's really my top schools right now.
"I haven't been able to take any visits because I haven't taken the [SAT] test. I'm taking it on the fourth [of June]."
With guards across the country making verbal commitments, the dominoes are starting to fall. Walker admits that he would like to decide relatively soon, but only if the right opportunity presents itself.
"I want to be able to make it by the end of the summer so I'll be settled with where I want to be. But, if it doesn't go down like that I'm open to everybody until it happens."
NC State's in the mix and Walker named them co-favorites along with Ohio State. What does he like about the Wolfpack?
"My coach talks to NC State a lot, and I've talked to coach Phelps a couple of times recently," Walker said. "They sent me a couple of letters saying they hope I play well in the tournaments.
"NC State has said they are looking for guards. They have some seniors, and I'd get to play right away if I went there. I like them for sure."
