Will the revenge tour for Northwestern women’s basketball reach two straight games? NU’s reward for shutting down No. 13 Michigan in the second half on Thursday is a semifinal date with No. 7 Maryland.
The ‘Cats hung with the high-powered Terps in their only prior meeting on Senior Day, limiting the nation’s best offense to only 62 points. Brenda Frese’s squad can play defense as well, though, and held Northwestern to only 50 points.
NU looks like a rejuvenated team with Courtney Shaw back in the lineup, but the play of Lindsey Pulliam and Veronica Burton, who combined for 43 points against Michigan, will determine whether it moves on to the championship.
