Aside from Pearson's outstanding performance, the best player on the City Team appeared to be Florida-bound, 5'8 point guard Erving Walker (20 points, 11 assists, 4 turnovers, 3 steals, 5 rebounds, 6-18 FG, 2-10 3P) who happens to be Pearson's teammate at Christ the King. While short on size, Walker isn't short on anything in the skill department, as he showed excellent ball-handling skills, having the ball on a string, mixing in advanced moves, and frequently penetrating into the lane to cut up the defense. He was the game's leader in assists with 11, and frequently excelled on the drive and dish and in transition, looking unselfish for the most part, but knowing when to step up for a pull-up three-pointer, which he hit a few times in the game. He also showed a nice floater, and despite his size, Walker is probably someone who should be able to help the Gators out if he can crack their point guard depth chart, which is a bit cramped at the moment with Nick Calathes and Jai Lucas.

We have to insist on Walker, the heart and soul of this squad. Rightfully selected for the All-Tournament Team, he was spectacular for many stretches, running, passing and scoring, sometimes at will, just providing the fuel his team needed to remain competitive in most games.

Extremely small (he looks way shorter than the 5-10 he's listed), Walker relies on his impressive quickness and great ball-handling. Like a devil set on fire, he would drive past anyone, sneak between defenses, to find layups –that he netted with both hands- or force defensive rotations that would leave his teammates open, especially behind the three-point line, where they would receive his kick-out passes. He's a tough guy, really strong, ready to bump into any opponent and able to play even off contact while maintaining nice control of his body.

Still Walker showed a very nice shooting ability to compliment his slashing efforts. Almost money in the bank when left open, he showcased three-point range and off-the-dribble mechanics, even from deep positions, with a nicely quick release, although he often forced too much, which ended up affecting his percentages.

On the negative side, besides his obvious lack of size, Walker shows limitations running a team It basically comes down to the point that he needs to first beat his match-up off the dribble in order to get anything going, that is, unless he can find space to shoot from the perimeter.

Anyway, expect him to emerge as an important point guard in college basketball with the Florida Gators, with some chances to make it to the NBA as a sparkplug guy in someone's rotation after four years.

Walker, who was rumored to have decommitted from Florida, is still firm in his pledge to become a Gator in 2008 despite the recent events involving Billy Donovan potentially leaving to coach the Orlando Magic. The first thing that stands out about his game is his speed. Walker was the fastest player that we saw with the ball in his hands. It was nearly impossible to stay in front of him in a transition situation. In addition, Walker has very strong ball-handling skills, which made him such a threat offensively to get into the lane and create. He exhibited a very strong ability to draw defenders and then kick to open teammates, but did not attempt many shots in the lane himself. The perimeter is where Walker showed off his shooting abilities. He has a great touch on his shot and a fairly quick release, making him a real sharpshooter from the outside. Defensively, Walker played solidly, staying aggressive against his men and forcing a few turnovers thanks to his quickness.

As a whole it was a solid showing from Walker, although he is going to have to improve his ability to finish inside, something we didn’t see much of from him during his playoff game.
