2. Tyson Walker scores 20 yet again
A year ago, Tyson Walker scored more than 20 points one time for Michigan State. It was in a losing effort to Illinois at home, but he helped the Spartans storm back from a double-digit second-half deficit to nearly pulling off the upset. Over the last two games, Walker has two 20-point performances.
He’s already doubled the number of 20-point games he had last year through five games and he’s going to triple it on. Friday night against a struggling Oregon team.
Oregon has a decent defense this year, but the Ducks have allowed about 75 points per game over their last two losses to ranked teams. Michigan State’s offense can get hot from distance and really fill it up and Walker is the kind of player that can go on a 10-0 run of his own.
Walker shot the ball 22 times against Alabama and finished with 21 points and I think he’ll shoot 20 times against Oregon and finish with 23 points. Another huge game from the senior point guard.
