Tenacity remains a challenge for Minnesota's Walker

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Mo Walker has plenty of discipline. He dropped about 60 pounds after Richard Pitino was hired to make sure he could keep up with Minnesota coach's faster style.

The 6-foot-10 center's biggest challenge these days revolves around mental toughness. This is more of a tenacity issue, a guy with a low-key personality trying to maintain a consistent amount of grit required to be a productive defender and rebounder in the Big Ten.

The low-post scoring ability, featuring a feathery-soft hook shot, has already been proven. For this late-blooming senior, though, the attacking attitude must be renewed every game.
