The Michigan basketball team appears to have filled two vacant assistant coaching positions this past week — and both hires are from the same school. 

As first reported by Josh Henschke of The Michigan Insider and Brendan Quinn of The Athletic, Luke Yaklich and Deandre Haynes will both be making the move to Michigan from Illinois State. They are set to replace Billy Donlon and Jeff Meyer, who departed the program this offseason for jobs at Northwestern and Butler, respectively. The school has yet to confirm either hire.

One week ago yesterday, the Michigan softball team bowed out to Michigan State in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament. Today, it will play No. 6 Washington in hopes of moving one large step closer to a Super Regional bid.

Friday night, the Wolverines dispatched Fresno State behind a 13-strikeout performance from senior right-hander Megan Betsa. 

Junior right-fielder Aidan Falk broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the fifth inning, with a two-out, two- strike, two-run single down the right field line, grabbing Michigan a lead it would keep.

Carol Hutchins coaches her team Friday against Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament.

This is what happens when the standard is set higher than everyone else, when “that good” is defined differently than for most everyone else.

Megan Betsa had gotten the better of Michigan State centerfielder Lea Foerster in their previous two meetings, but Friday, the roles were reversed.

But on this day, it was Foerster getting the best of Betsa, proving a menace atop the Spartans’ order — reaching base in all four of her at-bats — and paving the way for the win nobody could have seen coming.

Megan Betsa has 370 strikeouts this year, tops in the country.

She was a kid from rural Georgia in Ann Arbor in the middle of January. Against all odds, it was love at first sight.
