Michigan Women's Basketball: Indiana drops Wolverines in Big Ten Tournament

Women’s Basketball season is over:

Michigan Women’s Basketball season finished their disappointing season yesterday when they lost to Indiana in the Big Ten Tournament.

They started the game off very well with a 12-0 lead and were playing well. Then, Indiana seemed to step it up in the first half and fought back, and making the game very entertaining. Michigan went into the locker room with a 28-26 lead.

Michigan still was playing well in the second half until eleven minutes to go when Indiana took their first lead of the day. After taking the lead, Indiana started adding pressure with a full court press that really frazzled the Michigan squad forcing a lot of turnovers and easy buckets for Indiana, who ended up blowing the game wide open.

Michigan could not do anything right and could not get a bucket to drop, so Indiana took advantage of it and ended up beating Michigan 68-50.

This has been a disappointing year for Michigan, especially after the good run last year, reaching the WNIT, and having several key players back this year. Michigan lost seven games by six points or less this year. They started really well by beating a couple of ranked programs, but, it seemed, when they entered the Big Ten conference everything fell apart and they couldn't get many wins.

The team ends up with a 10-20 overall record and loses four seniors in Carly Benson, Jessica Minnfield, Melinda Queen, and Stephany Skrba.
