Oklahoma State goes down in thriller to MI, 92-91

Spencer Simpson | 18 March, 2017, 00:59

Notice the smoking scoreboard.

Walton racked up 26 points, 11 assists and five rebounds on Friday afternoon to lift MI to a 92-91 win over Oklahoma State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Michigan, the seven seed, outlasted Oklahoma State, 92-91, in the opening Midwest Regional game here.

Nickname: Cowboys. Coach: Brad Underwood.Stillwater, Okla., 20-12.

The win improved the team's chances of making the NCAA tournament. The game is evolving into this.

I'll tell you who: Anybody who has been assigned to guard Walton.

Iona kept pace with some insane 3-pointers, but OR overwhelmed them in the paint.

Defense is supposed to win championships, and it still might win this one in the end.

Tournament Record: 52-25, 26 years.

So Friday's shootout was a seminar on what modern offense can be, efficient and powerful, and unsafe from long range.

Michigan State did not have a good season, especially by their standards.

Northwestern has Central Michigan in a four-game series at home in Evanston. Can they fire it back up or have they already won their Super Bowl? Bridges averages 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds while Ward scores 13.7 and grabs 6.5 rebounds. "As a point guard it's great to be a part of a high-paced game, but man, it's nerve-wracking".

Tom Izzo is known for having Michigan State make runs in March.

After losing to Kansas State on January 19, Oklahoma State was 10-8. "It is a great place to play and a lot of legends have come and played here". "Didn't look like it, anyway".

In addition to shooting 64 per cent from the field in the second half and 51.8 per cent for the game, the Wolverines had only four turnovers. You look back and the ball's in the net every time. "It's a good time to be alive right now", Sanderson said. The Wolverines are now on a six-game win streak and have won 11 of their last 12 games.

So maybe the tournament will be the same flavor.

We all know the next big subject with Oklahoma State basketball will be Jawun Evans and whether he stays another year.

MI closed as a 2.5-point betting favorite today against Oklahoma State in a first round game and led by four points with the final seconds quickly ticking off the clock.

The ACC probably has the strongest group of teams in both the tournament and the NIT. Only problem was, the Bruins scored 102.

Derrick Walton rose to the challenge against Juwan Evans, one of the top point guards in the country.

Juwan Evans scored 23 points to lead the 10th-seeded Cowboys (20-13), who finished the season with four consecutive losses. At that point, the Wolverines' offense had yet to ignite, and that continued to be the case with Wagner on the bench as Oklahoma State opened up a seven-point lead.

All the ingredients of victory. The team finished the regular season by winning six of their last eight games. The Wolverines made 11. This game was not decided in the first half, it was one that had a lot going on and going both ways in the final 20 minutes. I don't think anyone really expected the Badgers to rise to the level they did and briefly threaten the Gophers for the lead atop the Big Ten, but they did, and I think for many Badgers fans, that's statement enough.
