In the 2017 National Championship Game, Walker scored a career-high 32 points as the Lady Panthers finished as the nation’s #2-ranked team.

All-time great

Walker finished her collegiate career as VUU’s all-time leading rebounder with 1,204 rebounds and fourth among the all-time leading VUU scorers with 1,513 points.

Walker will join fellow Radford University’s Jordynn Gaymon as the two American players on Ensino Lugo.
