I guarantee Michigan State will make it up to Tyson — in Sweet 16 style.

Head coach Tom Izzo and his Michigan State Spartans squared off against the Marquette Golden Eagles in the second round of the NCAA March Madness college basketball tournament, and it was the Spartans who would punch their tickets to the Sweet 16 in a 69-60 victory. And a large portion of the credit has to go to their star guard Tyson Walker.

Walker was solid against Marquette, putting up 23 points off 8-f0r-17 shooting in the win. He also added two rebounds, two assists and one steal on his stat line.

Well, while Walker was delivering his star performance to send Michigan State to the Sweet 16, his car ended up getting towed away from the school’s campus. Talk about a hero’s welcome.

I have a feeling that this whole situation will get sorted out pretty quickly. With how passionate Michigan State is about basketball, I could picture the school not only paying for the tow fees, but also hooking him up with some kind of nice package. After all, we are in the age of NIL.

My biggest question with this whole thing though: How on earth do you make the mistake of towing the car of one of your March Madness stars? (RELATED: March Madness Crowd Erupts In Boos After FAU’s Alijah Martin Tries To Pull Off Flashy Dunk)

I mean, this kid literally just got the school to the Sweet 16. They should have seen that potential before the tournament ever started (because the Spartans somehow make it to the Sweet 16 on a very, very consistent basis), and protected that car like they would their life.

This is March Madness that we’re talking about! A national championship is up for grabs! Come on, Spartyland!
