Cimino excited for matchup in Michigan

Considering that the BU women only managed a seven point win against D-II East Stroudsburg in last Friday's exhibition, the odds aren't exactly in their favor for the start of the regular season on the road in Ann Arbor, MI. The Bearcats will hop on a plane to take on the Michigan Wolverines.

Win or lose, it's one of those games you want to have on the schedule for the attention it brings to your program.

"It's a great exposure event for our program," said Head Coach Linda Cimino. "Anytime you can get a team like that on our schedule it kind of brings us to national attention in terms of people knowing who we are. We're really excited to play Michigan because it'll be a huge challenge for us and we'll kind of get a sense of where we are, what we're doing well, what we need areas of improvement. You want to play the best to improve and get better and that's what we're looking to do."

The Bearcats and Wolverines tipoff Saturday at noon.
