this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Congrats to four Michigan women's basketball players for earning All-Big Ten honors:
- Kate Thompson: 2nd team, coaches and media
- Jenny Ryan: 3rd team, coaches and media
- Rachel Sheffer: honorable mention, coaches and media
- Nya Jordan: honorable mention, media
From the press release:
It is the first time since the 2001-02 season that U-M has had two players on a second or third team. Ryan was also Michigan's Big Ten Sportsmanship Award honoree.
Big Ten Tournament
The team is seeded 5th in the Big Ten tournament and will play Indiana, the 12 seed, on Thursday at about 9:30 ET (Big Ten Network). If Michigan wins, they'll play MSU on Friday at about the same time. A tourney bracket can be accessed here.
Updated bracket projections from both ESPN's Charlie Creme and the S Factor blog have Michigan as an 8 seed for the NCAA tourney. The Wolverines are a lock to earn their second-straight NCAA berth at this point—how they do in the BTT will affect only their seeding.

Aside from Brandon Graham and Zoltan the Destroyer/Space Emperor/whatever-you-call-a-man-beast-of-a-punter, which players do we think are most likely to be on the All-Big Ten first/second team at the end of the season? Minor? Warren? Surprise Barwisized player?
