Michigan women's basketball forward Naz Hillmon scores school-record 50 points in loss to Ohio State

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Michigan women's basketball junior forward Naz Hillmon scored a school-record 50 points to go along with 16 rebounds, but it wasn't enough for the 11th-ranked Wolverines, who fell 81-77 at No. 17 Ohio State on Thursday.

Ohio State's Jacy Sheldon scored 20 points, including a 3-pointer and two free throws in the final 48 seconds to seal the victory for the Buckeyes (8-1, 4-1 Big Ten). It was Michigan's (10-1, 5-1) first loss of the season.

Hillmon broke Michigan's program scoring record -- for men or women -- by making 20 of 30 field goals and 10 of 14 free throws.

It was the highest scoring output this season in Division I, and the first 50-point game in the Big Ten since Rachel Banham's 52 for Minnesota on Feb. 21, 2016.

Hillmon, whose previous best scoring game was 35 points, broke the Michigan women's scoring record that has stood since Diane Dietz had 45 against Illinois on Feb. 27, 1982. Hillmon also broke Dietz's field goal record of 17 set in the same game.

Michigan's scoring record on the men's side is 48 points set by Rudy Tomjanovich and Cazzie Russell -- both in the 1960s.
