Happy Tuesday and Happy New Year, folks. Welcome to Morning Brews. In light of the holiday, we’re doing another abbreviated edition of Morning Brews. We have a couple quick check-ins with Michigan teams who were in action this past weekend, but after that I’ll just leave a watch grid of today’s bowl games and y’all can feel free to use this as an open thread all day.

Let’s get to it:

Hockey ties both games at Great Lakes Invitational. After a three week hiatus, Michigan was back on the ice for the annual Great Lakes Invitational. Unfortunately, Mel Pearson’s squad tied both Michigan Tech (2-2) and Michigan State (2-2). The Wolverines also tied a record on the ice this past weekend, for most ties in the season. With six ties this year, Michigan has matched their all-time mark set in the 1989-90 season and matched in the 1998-99 season. After the weekend, the team has a 6-7-6 (2-4-4) record and will be back in action on January 5th against Notre Dame.

Women’s basketball loses to Nebraska, but tops Minnesota. After seven days off, the Wolverines were cold from the field. A day shooting in the 30s, and a massive fourth quarter effort by Nebraska, led to a 70-56 defeat at the hands of the Cornhuskers. However, Kim Barnes Arico’s squad were able to bounce back in style. Yesterday, Michigan notched what’s likely to be a quality win come tournament time with a 76-60 win over No. 12 Minnesota. The team is now 10-4 (1-1) on the season and their next game is against Purdue on January 5th.
