CELEBRATING ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDITORIAL FREEDOM
After defeating Nebraska 84-51 back on Jan. 22, the No. 25 Michigan women’s basketball team almost tied that margin in another win over the Cornhuskers on Thursday night.
In the past week, things have taken a turn for the worse for the twenty-fifth ranked Wolverines.
Michigan couldn’t overcome an 18-point halftime deficit in a 72-61 loss to Indiana, but the Wolverines remain two games ahead of the Hoosiers for third place in the Big Ten.
Though Wisconsin trailed just 55-51 with nine minutes to go in the final quarter, Michigan managed to maintain its lead and eke out a win.
Michigan, who is 5-4 in true road games this season, will travel to West Lafayette to take on Purdue on Wednesday night.
The Michigan wrestling team (4-4 Big Ten, 8-5 overall) topped Michigan State on Sunday with the help of redshirt freshmen Logan Massa and Myles Amine and senior Brian Murphy.
Michigan trailed the Fighting Illini 40-37 at halftime but went on to outscore Illinois, 26-12, in the third quarter and pull away for a victory.
With their 80-54 victory over Northwestern on Wednesday, the Wolverines are now a perfect 11-0 at home in the 2016-17 season.
The Wolverines unraveled in the final frame, as they were outscored 19-9 en route to an 83-70 defeat.
The Wolverines will need to find ways to replicate their performance from Tuesday against Indiana in tight contests if they plan to reach the NCAA Tournament for the second time in Barnes Arico’s five-year tenure.
