Tyson Walker’s second-half dunk was first of his career
Michigan State is headed back to the Sweet 16 following the Spartans’ 69-60 victory over the Marquette Golden Eagles on Sunday. Tyson Walker led the way for Michigan State, scoring 23 points. Walker also capped the Spartans’ Sweet 16 clinching performance with a huge steal that he turned into a monster slam on the other end.
Following the game, Walker revealed it was the first in-game dunk of his career:
Tyson Walker said postgame that his second-half dunk was the first he's pulled off in his career in-game — much to the surprise of coach Tom Izzo.
Walker: "I ain't never dunked in a game."
Izzo: "Never dunked?"
Walker: "Nah, but I went for it." pic.twitter.com/fD8FTe4GkC
