ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Katelynn Flaherty scored seven of her 27 points in the final two minutes and No. 24 Michigan took the lead in the third quarter before holding off Marquette 82-76 on Thursday night.

Marquette (4-4) led by as many as nine points in the second quarter but the Wolverines (7-2) scored the last five points to close within 33-29. The run continued for another seven points in the third quarter with Nicole Munger's 3-pointer giving Michigan the lead.

An 8-0 run turned into a 12-2 surge run when Flaherty hit back-to-back buckets and Michigan eventually took a 57-46 lead into the fourth quarter.

The lead reached 16 points with 7:46 remaining before the Warriors stormed back. After a 9-0 run, Erika Davenport had four free throws in 13 seconds to cut it to 68-65 with 4:58 to play and her layup 35 seconds later cut it to two.

Flaherty's 3-point play with 1:46 to go made it a six-point game. Flaherty hit four straight free throws to help seal it.

Hallie Thome had 17 points for Michigan and Jillian Dunston had 14 rebounds.

Davenport led Marquette with 23 points, matching her career high, Allazia Blockton had 19 points and 11 rebounds and Danielle King scored 19.
