The No. 13 Michigan women’s basketball team was on a roll. The Wolverines were on a six-game winning streak, and attained their highest national ranking since reaching No. 12 in 2001.
But then on Thursday, things took a turn as Michigan fell to Purdue, 81-79, in overtime.
“I think, you know, the rankings got to us a little bit, which can never happen,” said senior forward Jillian Dunston. “I’m angry that we lost, but if we had to get a wake-up call I’d rather get it now.”
