Walker, the third leading scorer in SEC history with 2,906 points (24.8 ppg) was selected to both the State Farm and Basketball News in 1983 after averaging 27.6 points a game. In 1982, her first year as an All-American, Walker was named to the Basketball News All-America Team, while in 1984 she was named to the State Farm, Basketball News and JC Penney All-America teams.
