A sweet 16 berth is on the line in San Antonio, Texas this evening as the Tennessee Lady Volunteers square off against No. 6 seed Michigan. Tennessee beat MTSU with a strong second half on Sunday, while Michigan took care of business against Florida Gulf Coast.
The winner of tonight’s game will advance to face the winner of (2) Baylor vs. (7) Virginia Tech.
Michigan is 15-5 on the season, finishing the year with a 9-4 mark in Big Ten play. Leading the way for the Wolverines will be 6-2 forward Naz Hillmon, who averages over 25 points per game. Tennessee will match that production with forward Rennia Davis (17.5 ppg) and guard Rae Burrell (17 ppg).
