NBA Prospect Walker Makes Debut for Gators

Updated

on

On Tuesday night, Billy Donovan unleashed Chris Walker, the much-hyped, potential month-and-done NBA prospect. The freshman had finally gained clearance from the men and women behind the curtain in Indianapolis to compete after missing the first semester due to academic issues.

Walker wasn’t the best player on the floor during his debut in No. 3 Florida’s 68-58 win over Missouri in Gainesville. But he helped. And if he continues to progress, the addition could be significant for a Florida team that can compete for the national championship without him.

He didn’t force things. He tried to blend in — as much as one who hovers above the cylinder can realistically blend. He caught a few lobs. He blocked a few shots. But he essentially watched his teammates maintain Florida’s spot atop the SEC and extend its winning streak to 14 games from the bench.
