This years Sweet 16 will be twice as sweet for Michigan fans!

On Monday, the men’s team took down LSU in a heated battle. Chaundee Brown was the big star for the Wolverines as they were able to down the Tigers and head to a Sweet 16 in Juwan Howard’s second season with the team.

On Tuesday, the women’s team made sure to join in on the sweetness. Despite taking on 3-seed and traditional power Tennessee, the Wolverines put up a strong effort and downed the Lady Volunteers, 70-55.

Leigha Brown led all scorers with 23 points on 6-for-14 shooting. She also was a perfect 11-for-11 from the free-throw line and added three rebounds, five assists, and three steals to her stat line.

Naz Hillmon was also dominant for the Wolverines with another double-double at 19 points and 15 rebounds. Hailey Brown also scored in double figures with 14 points.

As a team, Michigan shot 38.3% from the floor and 6-for-20 from deep, but it was the defense of the Wolverines that was the big key. They held Tennessee 33.9% shooting the ball and just 2-for-14 from three-point range in the upset.

From here, the Wolverines will advance to play the winner of the 7-seed Virginia Tech vs 2-seed Baylor matchup.
