(UNDATED) - For the first time since 2013, the University of Michigan women's basketball team earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament on Monday night. The Wolverines are the No. 7 seed in the Lexington Region and will face Northern Colorado in the first round Friday in Waco, Texas. Michigan (22-9) earned an at-large bid, while Northern Colorado (26-6) received an automatic berth as Big Sky Conference champion. The teams will square off at 5 Pm Eastern time. The winner of that game will advance to face the winner of No. 2 seed Baylor (31-1) and No. 15 seed Grambling (19-13) on Sunday. Michigan is making its seventh NCAA Tournament appearance in program history. U-M has a 3-6 overall mark in the tourney, having won its first-round games in 1990, 2001 and 2013. Head coach Kim Barnes Arico will be making her sixth appearance in the NCAA Tournament, with the first four appearances coming at St. John's (2006, 2010, 2011, 2012). She is 6-5 all-time in the tournament and reached the Sweet 16 in 2012. Arico led Michigan to the second round in 2013, tying its best tournament performance. Michigan went 10-6 in the Big Ten for a sixth-place finish. U-M is led by the duo of senior Katelynn Flaherty (23.2 ppg) and junior Hallie Thome (17.0 ppg), the second-highest scoring duo in the conference.
