Ty Walker's senior year didn't start they way he would have liked, but after sitting out the first nine games of the season due to a violation of the school's conduct code, Ty Walker has emerged as the starting center for Wake Forest.

“I'm just trying to protect the rim, that's my major role… blocking shots, altering shots,” the New Hanover High grad said.

Thursday night, the Demon Deacons played at Duke. While Walker was a defensive force inside, Wake was no match for the fourth-ranked Blue Devils.

Andre Dawkins connected on seven three pointers as Duke cruised to a 91-73 win.

As for Wilmington native Ty Walker, he has now started the last four games and is looking for a solid finish to his collegiate career.

After the season is over, it is time to move on. “I'll probably pick an agent and begin my workouts for professional basketball where ever it may be,” he said.

While Thursday’s outcome wasn't what Walker and Wake Forest had hoped for, not many beat the Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Standing...

is about all Ty has done His whole career and very little of that. Sitting mostly. While He has played Ok the last couple of games, still not the career everyone was expecting from Him. He should probably focus on His academics and think of a job other than basketball. But good luck to Him.
