Flaherty was 3-of-5 from 3-point range as she joined Kate Thompson as the only players in Michigan Women’s Basketball history to make 100-or-more 3-pointers in a single season. Michigan also set a new single-season record for assists in the game.

Hallie Thome recorded 16 points and seven rebounds, while Madison Ristovski added 14 points in the victory.

With the win, Michigan has now posted five straight 20-win seasons, four of which have come under head coach Kim Barnes Arico.

The Wolverines will advance to the quarterfinal round of the WNIT, where they will play the winner of Thursday’s Temple vs. Ohio game.
