Derrick Walton Jr put the No. 8 seeded Wolverines on his senior shoulders Saturday afternoon, with the second straight tournament upset, knocking off No. 4 seed Minnesota, 84-77, at the Verizon Center.
He dished early, with five assists in just over the first 5 minutes, and then closed late, dropping 19 of his career-high 29 in the second half, pushing Michigan into Sunday's Big Ten title game against No. 2 seed Wisconsin.
