Nice to see such a loving embrace between the coach and director.

Nice win! Michigan should be able to win three of its last four conference games that are left. If that happens, then Michigan should be tied for third in the conference with possibly Nebraska and Illinois. I am not sure what tie breaker will be used in seating teams for the Big Ten tournament but Michigan will have wins over both Nebraska and Illinois in their single meetings with them this year. Therefore, Michigan should earn third place seating which means that they will not have to play four games to win the Big Ten championship and could have an easier opponent for its first tournament game then if they finished further down in the standings. Furthermore, a 22-8 record (not counting one or more wins during the Big Ten tournament) with wins over Purdue and Michigan State late in the season should guarantee Michigan's being selected to play in the NCAA tournament and maybe earn a 5 or 6 seed. Way to go Lady Wolverines!

Thrilled for the team. Great win! Kim should be thanking Kevin Borseth every day she goes to work. He cleaned up, built and created a winning environment she has been able to walk into nearly hassle free. Lets Go Blue!
