Michigan Wolverines women’s basketball team to open season vs. national champions

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Defending national champion South Carolina has another splashy opening planned.

The Gamecocks will take on Michigan at the Hall of Fame Series in Las Vegas on Nov. 4 to tip off the season. A year ago, South Carolina began their undefeated, championship season by defeating Notre Dame in Paris.

The game will be the first between the Gamecocks and Wolverines since 1995. South Carolina leads the all-time series 3-0.

The win over Notre Dame last season began a perfect run for the Gamecocks, who finished 38-0 to become just the 10th undefeated champions in women’s basketball.

The men’s game of the Las Vegas doubleheader features Texas and Ohio State.
