As the Michigan softball team prepares for its first game in the Big Ten Tournament Friday, two of the Daily's softball beat writers exchanged their reasons why the Wolverines will, or won't, bring home the tenth conference championship in program history.
Michigan pounded out 53 hits — over double the amount it had the weekend before, and the most production it has seen in a single weekend all season. Twelve separate players tallied hits, contributing to the weekend’s grand total, and the Wolverines scored 45 runs in all.
As the end of the regular season nears, the No. 19 Michigan softball team stands two games behind No. 4 Minnesota in the Big Ten standings with three must-win games to go, all taking place this weekend at Rutgers.
