Tevonn Walker Making Noise Early in NCAA Career
Tevonn Walker out of Montreal, Quebec is having himself a very strong freshman year with Valporaiso, coming off a season-high 22 points in last night’s loss to Oakland.
16 games into his NCAA career and Walker is averaging 11 points, three rebounds and three assists on 44% from the field, for a team with a record of 13-3 as the Crusaders have now entered conference play in the Horizon League.
“He is a politely aggressive basketball player who attacks the basket like a running back who hits the hole,” Joey McKitterick, Walker’s club coach (Brookwood Elite) told North Pole Hoops.
“He apologizes as he is knocking guys over,” McKitterick laughed. “I knew he would have an impact right away.”
Walker is the second leading scorer for Valpo and second in assists per game in his first year at the D1 level.
Andy Hertzog, Walker’s former coach at Vanier College echoed McKitterick, explaining “he is very athletic and gets to the basket against anyone.”
“He plays hard every possession on both ends of the court.”
This Montreal product was a top-15 player coming out of Canada, prior to college, and is surely playing like it.
Tevonn Walker is making noise early in his NCAA career…keep tabs.
