WOLVERINE WOMEN TRY TO MAKE IT THREE IN A ROW OVER SPARTANS
The B1G Women's Basketball tournament is underway and Michigan meets Michigan State at 12:30 p.m. today on the Big Ten Network. The winner will face the #1-seeded Maryland Terrapins on Friday.
UM has had a charmed run against MSU, winning both games this year against the Spartans. If they can win this afternoon, it will be the first time in history that the Wolverines have won three games in one year against their rivals. It would also mark the first time that Michigan has knocked Michigan State out of the conference tournament. MSU has clipped UM in the league tourney on four previous occasions, including the last two seasons.
The Spartans are positioned for an N.I.T. bid with either outcome, the first season they have missed the NCAA Tournament under Suzy Merchant. The Wolverines are fighting to earn a bid to the Big Dance, and will likely need a win today in order to make it there.
