In its first trip to the NCAA Tournament in school history, the UNC Women’s basketball team will play the University of Michigan at 3 p.m. Friday in Waco, Texas.

UNC (26-6) cruised through last weekend’s Big Sky tournament to clinch a 10 seed. Michigan (23-9) lost to Nebraska in the quaterfinals of the Big 10 tournament, but received a 7 seed and an at-large bid.

The Bears won their last 13 on their way to the 10 seed — which is higher than most mid-major conference teams get.

The best mid-majors are typically seeded 12th, but UNC bolstered its tournament resume with early-season wins over DePaul and LSU. DePaul is a 5 seed, and LSU is a 6 seed in this years tournament.
