Lamelo Ball and Spire Academy may have more than just Julian Newman to deal with in the next couple of weeks, because we have been told that Spire Academy could be playing against Hillcrest Prep North and Kyree Walker on January 18th, the day before Melo is set to face off against Julian Newman and Downey Christian High School.
Although it is possible it is a different Spire playing against Walker, we will give you all the information about Walker you need to know for this potential match up.
Kyree Walker is a 6-5 Junior Shooting Guard for Hillcrest Prep North and is rated as a 5 star recruit in the 2020 recruiting class. Walker excels at getting to the basket and is able to create his own looks with ease. Walker is also an adept defender who is capable of stealing the ball with regularity.
Stats: 29.7 PPG, 10.9 RPG, 6.3 APG, 3.3 SPG
In terms of his match up with Lamelo, this will be the toughest test of Melo’s season if it indeed happens. Walker is one of the only players that could potentially stop Lamelo’s offense and take advantage of him on the other end.
