Sunday vs. Wisconsin
The Michigan women’s basketball team continues to roll, extending their winning streak to 6 games with Sunday’s 75-66 victory over Wisconsin. Led by a red-hot Katelynn Flaherty (35 points), the Wolverines were able to defend their home court despite struggling to get consistent stops on defense. Creating a spark off the bench, Nicole Munger recorded her first career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. After Sunday’s win, Michigan moved up to #20 in the AP Poll. This Thursday at 6:00 pm, the Wolverines visit Indiana before returning to Crisler on Sunday to face Michigan State at 2:00 pm.
