I used to be a huge Walton critic (offensively. His defense has always been stellar) but his play this year started turning me around. Tonight’s performance cemented that. He can now do no wrong. Thank you Travis.
I couldn’t be any happier for Walton a having a huge hand on this win. He’s been a gutsy player from the first day he stepped on the floor for MSU, this was the gutsiest of gutsy gutsiness out of him. And the intensity on defense. Count me as one who would be happy if he decided to become a grad assistant next year, and a candidate for the big job in 15 years or so. The deeper MSU goes in this tournament, the bigger the legend of this game becomes.
