After a rough game on Sunday in front of a sold out Crisler for the first time ever, the #25 ranked Wolverine Women once again played at Crisler Center.
This time it was against last place Nebraska in front of a sparse crowd on senior night.
We honored Siera Thompson and Danielle Williams tonight. Thompson was the all-time leader in 3-pointers here until her teammate Katelynn Flaherty passed her up. She's been a great PG for us and will be missed next season.
Michigan raced out to a 28-11 lead after the 1st quarter before allowing Nebraska to keep what little chance they had alive, by holding Michigan scoreless for a little bit late to end the half which ended in a Nebraska triple.
It took a bit in the second half, but the Wolverines eventually pulled away midway through the 3rd, and would take this one 88-60.
Katelynn Flaherty was back tonight. A 25 point outing with five 3s for the all-time leader. Great response by her.
Kysre Gondrezick had 21 off the bench (Danielle Williams got the start on senior night).
Michigan has officially clinched 3rd place in the B1G, the highest finish for the program outright since 1999-00.
This means we will get the coveted double bye in the B1G Tournament next week in Indianapolis and the 3 seed. Our B1G Tournament Quarterfinal game will take place at 9pm on BTN next Friday.
But before we do any of that, the regular season finale still has to happen. It'll come to a wrap on Sunday when we head to Penn State for a 2pm tilt on BTN.
