Walton Heaps Another Plaudit on the Pile

For the sixth consecutive week, Wichita State has placed a representative on the American Athletic Conference Honor Roll. For the third time, that someone is Jaykwon Walton.

The 6-6 guard scored a team-high 21 points on 5-of-7 three-point shooting in Thursday’s road win at Temple. 10 of his points came during the Shockers’ 21-3 game-ending run.

Walton has earned conference honor roll nods a team-best four times this season.

The junior out of Columbus, Ga. is averaging 14.4 points along with 5.3 rebounds. He’s shooting close to 40% from three (35-of-89, .393) and has topped 20 points on six occasions.

The Shockers (14-12, 7-7 American) play host to Memphis this Thursday night (6 p.m., ESPN2). Tickets are available online at goshockers.com/tickets, by phone at 316-978-3267 (FANS) or in person at the Shocker Ticket Office, located inside Charles Koch Arena.
