In a idyllic world, this would have been a fitting sendoff for Erving Walker, Florida’s inspirational 5-foot-8 senior point guard who is a testament to what college basketball once was. In four years, Walker never missed a game and has become the fourth-leading scorer, second-leading three-point maker and No. 1 assist man in school history.But that nostalgic, idyllic world gave way the real one Sunday when Walker and the Gators were overshadowed once again by Kentucky’s high-flying One-and-Doners, whose 74-59 victory was UK’s 22nd straight and completed an undefeated 16-0 romp through the SEC. This, sadly, is what college basketball has become — a temp agency for rogue UK coach John Calipari’s whooping, swooping, alley-ooping rent-a-stars."
