As the Michigan women’s basketball team was battling Purdue, a more personal bout was transpiring on the court between the Wolverines’ freshman point guard, Amy Dilk, and the Boilermakers’ sophomore point guard, Karissa McLaughlin.
Hallie Thome’s injury opened the door for freshman forward Naz Hillmon to enter the game, who quickly showed to be the piece Michigan had been missing at the start of the game, as she brought the energy, and offense, needed to overwhelm the Bears (1-10).
Dilk’s cross-court pass caught Hillmon in stride, and she converted the wide-open layup. From there the Michigan women’s basketball team (8-3) never looked back en route to a 70-47 win over Morgan State (1-10).
In front of its home fans for the first time since Nov. 19, the Michigan women’s basketball team (6-3) snapped a two-game losing streak with an 83-38 victory over the hapless LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds (0-8).
