The Michigan women's basketball team is heading back to the NCAA tournament for the first time in over a decade.

Firmly on the bubble entering selection Monday, the Wolverines picked up a No. 11 seed and will face No. 6 Oklahoma in Norman, Okla.

Michigan had made the WNIT in three of Kevin Borseth's first four seasons, but this is his first NCAA bid with the school in his fifth year. The Wolverines hadn't been to the NCAAs since 2000-01, when they advanced to the second round.

It will be the fifth NCAA tournament appearance in program history.

Michigan has faced Oklahoma once in school history, losing to the Sooners on Dec. 28, 1993.
