Michigan Women played very well today beating Wright State at Crisler Center 71-66. They play the winner of Harvard/St. Johns in round three. It's possible Michigan could play Kim Barnes Arico's former team. Time and location TBD.j

Hallie Thome now has 1,000 points not even two full years in. 

Flaherty had 22 points today. Was a 3 point with a minute left, so not exactly an ideal game. We killed Wright State last year in the WNIT. 

A 7 point win and a 5 point win so far in this tournament.

The team seemed really off, but built a 20 point lead. Near the end of the game WS nearly tied the game. Michigan was fortunate to win.

Wright State actually took the lead by one, 64-63, with about 5 minutes left and then scored just 2 points the rest of the way. Lackluster is definitely the word for Michigan's play, and they were very lucky to win.

To be honest, most of the teams in the WNIT simply aren't very good. So far, the Michigan women really haven't shown that they deserved an NCAA bid.

No sense of the competition, but they've led by 20 in the second quarter of both games and struggled in the second halves. A few days to regroup should help. The best way to respond to disappointing seeding/not making it (as we just saw with Wisconsin) is to beat everyone they put in front of you.
