Rarely will you find a player in college or pro basketball who leads the team,
or is among the team leaders in scoring, rebounding, and assists. But, this is what Walton does for the Princeton
Tigers. He is one of the best passing forwards in the metro area. He also has a solid low post game and
can play out on the perimeter. There is no question that he can play professionally if he desires, because
Princeton regularly plays top flight competition and he has responded at every turn. He can play professionally
overseas, and if he gets drafetd by the proper team maybe in the IBL or ABA 2000.
