Videos: Florida's Chris Walker dunks all over Texas Southern

Chris Walker can write with lightning by bringing the thunder. (That metaphor doesn't make sense, but neither does he.)

As mentioned in our Game Thread, Texas Southern is short. There isn't a single Tiger as tall as Florida's Chris Walker, and that was an issue in the Tigers' 75-50 loss on Friday night.

But Walker jumping into the sky and throwing down oops like thunderclaps was a bigger one.

First, Walker threw down on an oop from Kasey Hill — his longtime AAU teammate — early in the second half.

Then, with just seconds to go, both in the game and on the shot clock, walk-on Lexx Edwards threw up a prayer — one that Walker answered, practically from the heavens.

And the latter made for a fantastic photo:

Walker started his night by doing damage on defense, too:

All told, Walker had 12 points, four blocks, and just two rebounds on a career-high 12 shots; he had eight points before the two dunks.

But Walker's slow, steady improvement as a basketball player isn't sexy. His ability to write with lightning while dropping thunder most certainly is.
