Given the opportunity in light of junior wing Leigha Brown's absence, junior guard Amy Dilk has shown her skills as a floor general. She has been invaluable to Michigan women's basketball maintaining its unbeaten record over the last three games.
In a game defined by messy play on both ends of the court by both teams, the No. 15 Wolverines (9-0 overall, 4-0 Big Ten) overcame their initial offensive and defensive struggles to defeat Illinois (2-6, 0-5), 70-50.
In the final moments of the game, up by two and on the heels of an 8-0 run from Nebraska, junior forward Naz Hillmon earned a vital offensive rebound and put back the second-chance layup, snapping Michigan’s drought.
