HOUGHTON – The Michigan Tech women’s basketball team cruised through the regular season, finishing with a 24-2 record.
Now, it’s all about winning three more games in order to become GLIAC Tournament champions. Thanks to their efforts during the regular season, the Huskies do not have to leave Houghton at all to play in the GLIAC Tournament.
First up for Michigan Tech is Hillsdale. The Huskies throttled the Chargers at home by thirty–one points on February 12. Michigan Tech loves playing at home, and their 13-0 record at the SDC proves just that.
“We love to play at home… we love our Husky fans,” said MTU women’s basketball coach Kim Cameron. “We love our crowd, we love our pep band, and we’re comfortable there. In order to make it as far as you want to go, you have to be playing your best basketball at this point. Nothing you’ve done so far can determine that except for what you’re building. We’re looking forward to having our best basketball in front of us and not behind us.”
“It’s awesome. We shoot on those hoops every single day and our crowd and band is amazing,” said Huskies guard Morgan Anderson. “We know that it doesn’t matter where you’re seeded. Anyone can win any day, so we have to bring our A-game every day.”
“We’ve gotten this far by just being ourselves,” said MTU forward Jillian Ritchie. “Going into the postseason, we’re kind of going in as veterans. We’ve been through the ringer this season and we’re ready to take on the tournament. Our favorite thing to do is play home games- our pep band, the community support, and as a senior there’s nothing more that I could ask for to have three extra home games on our home floor.”
Tip-off between Hillsdale and Michigan Tech is set for Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
