Coming into Saturday afternoon, the Michigan State Spartans men’s basketball team lost six of their last seven games, fearing that they may not make the NCAA Tournament. However, their bad luck was snapped on a shot when they needed it the most.
With 1.1 seconds left, Spartans guard Tyson Walker sank a three-point shot to lift themselves to a 68-65 upset win over the #4 Purdue Boilermakers.
That was a clutch shot that Walker made at the end of the game. It also struck some major Deja vu for MSU basketball fans.
Before he was drafted by the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, forward Miles Bridges sink a similar three in the waning seconds back in 2017-18 season that also come against Purdue, resulting in the same score.
Though the dates and the locations of the shots were off, but at least there was some big striking resemblances in the game.
They were both two crazy games that ended with two clutch threes by the Spartans to beat Purdue. Hopefully Michigan State can build off that momentum just in time for the 2022 Tournament.
