With just under 30 seconds remaining in Michigan’s 67-58 win over Indiana, Kim Barnes Arico pulled senior center Hallie Thome out of the game. As Thome took a seat on the bench, her coach approached her.
“Did you get it?” Barnes Arico asked.
“No coach, I needed one (more),” Thome said.
Despite finishing one point shy of the 2,000 point milestone, Thome was fine getting the only stat that mattered to her on the night: a fifth straight victory.
