2. Tyson Walker drops 25
Would you believe me if I told you the last time Tyson Walker scored at least 25 points in a single game was all the way back on Jan. 7? It's been a whole month since the star shooting guard has hit that mark and it's surprising given the fact that he averages 19 points per game.
But Walker hit a little bit of a slump from Jan. 14 until Jan. 30 when Michigan came to town. He shot under 50 percent from the field in four of five games and under 40 percent in three of them. His best game during that rough five-game stretch? At home against Minnesota.
Now he's headed to Minneapolis with a chance to break the program record for consecutive double-digit scoring games. And he'll do so emphatically.
Walker is coming off his best game in nearly a month, scoring 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting in a win over Maryland and he's going to build on that with a 10-for-21 shooting night with 25 points and three assists. He'll hit a few massive 3-pointers and he'll even go perfect from the charity stripe after hitting just one of his three free throws against Maryland.
We're getting prime Walker back at the right time.
