Today, the Women's basketball team beat the Western Michigan Broncos in Crisler, 74-47. Some highlights:
Katelyn Flaherty led the Wolverines in scoring with 18 points on 8-13 shooting. She hit shots from all over the floor, also going 2-5 from behind the arc.
Shannon Smith sniffed a triple double, with 7 pts 9 reb and 7 ast. Most of her assists came in transition, after WMU was stymied by Michigan's 2-3 zone.
Cyesha Goree was all-around dominant, with 14 points and 14 boards on 6-9 shooting. She could have had even gaudier numbers had she not been pulled with about 5 minutes to go.
The women's team could be one to look out for this year, as their 5 freshmen (Flaherty included) compose the best recruiting class in program history (no. 23 in the nation), and they return almost all of their main contributors from last year's NIT run. Today's win brought them to 3-1 on the season, and after today they are shooting about 43% from behind the arc on the year- I guess long distance shooting isn't just exclusive to the men.
Just a quick update, in case y'all needed something to brighten an otherwise dismal sports weekend.
