Seconds after draining a 3-pointer over a defender to force overtime in an elimination game Saturday night, Walton stood there, smiled and pumped his fist a little bit. In many ways, it was just another big moment for him in a tournament where he played extremely well the first two days.

“I didn’t know (it was going in),” Walton Jr. said of when he raised up with less than two seconds left in his final game Saturday.
