The Red Knights (23-3) advance to meet 14th-seeded Wilson in the semifinals Tuesday at 6:30 at Giant Center.

The Red Knights had a chance to win it in regulation but missed two shots in the final three seconds.

In overtime, Walker gave Reading the lead for good when he sliced through the lane for a basket with 2:22 left. He made three free throws in the final 20 seconds, and blocked a shot with six seconds left, to seal it.

The 6-5 junior played the final five minutes of regulation and four minutes of OT with four fouls.
