On Senior night, the Michigan Women (20-8 overall, 9-6 B1G, T-4th) beat northwestern 55-50 in a thriller. Nicole Elmblad had a huge basket with under a minute left to ultimately give Michigan the win.
Sheffer had 17 points moving to a tie for 16th on Michigan's all-time scoring list while Jenny Ryan became 2nd on the all-time assists list. Oddly enough, all 24 of Michigan's points at halftime were scored by the seniors honored tonight.
This senior class leaves Michigan as the winningest in program history, a 13-4 home record and the first ever 20 win season for a first-year head coach in program history. They also ended the dreaded streak against state beating them 70-69 at Crisler in the women's Rededication game.
A great senior class, that without a doubt, left the program 100% better than when they came in.
