"Sky" Walker was one of the most exciting players to ever wear a jersey
at the University of Kentucky. Kenny came to Kentucky from Roberta,
Georgia after being voted Mr. Basketball, a Parade and McDonald's All
American in 1982. He played for UK from 1982 - 1986 and ended up being
the second leading scorer in UK mens basketball history with 2080
points. Kenny is one of only three players to ever score over 2000 points along side Dan Issel and Jack "Goose" Givens. He
was a two time All American and SEC Player of the Year in 1985 &
1986. He ended his UK career as the leader in career free throw
attempts (733) and made free throws (550). The only way to stop "Sky"
from scoring was to foul him. Kenny was a member of the 1984 Final Four
team along side Sam Bowie and Melvin Turpin. Kenny's incredible
athleticism and offensive prowess made him one of UK's All Time
Favorites! Kenny was drafted #5 overall by the New York Knicks and went
on to have a successful NBA career until injuries cut his career short.
Kenny won the 1989 NBA Slam Dunk Championship in 1989!
#34 jersey is officially retired and hangs in the rafters of Rupp Arena.
Kenny was inducted into the UK Athletics Hall of Fame with its
inaugural class in 2005. Walker still resides in Lexington and can be
seen at games and other UK events. He can also be heard providing
commentary on the Kentucky basketball program on the radio.
