In her eighth year at the helm of the women’s basketball program, Michigan coach Kim Barnes Arico raked in the 12th-ranked recruiting class in 2020 to join the Wolverines, highlighted by the No. 30 recruit in the country — forward Cameron Williams. Williams is one of four players to sign her letter of intent, and is joined by No. 40 ranked Seattle native, guard Meghan Fiso, and two local Michigan players — guard Elise Stuck and forward Whitney Sollom.

Michigan just went on a 8-1 run, hitting layup after layup, dominating the inside and creating a seven-point lead. But just as the momentum seemed to pivot back in the direction of the Wolverines, quick 3-pointers and turnovers from sophomore guard Amy Dilk compounded into a 10-point swing for Akron. Michigan trailed in a game for the first time all season.

Michigan coach Kim Barnes Arico wants her team to avoid foul trouble.

It was an ugly game defined by mistakes, but after a day’s worth of rest and the experience of 40 minutes of basketball, Michigan managed to gain a grip on its mistakes. Against Bradley, it was cleaner — despite still committing 12 turnovers, it limited itself to 13 fouls.

For a moment, there was a question. For a moment, Michigan was sputtering — first-game rust, working the kinks out of a new team, what have you. For a moment, it was tight.

Western Michigan came out with a vengeance in the second quarter, quickly scoring off a couple of three-pointers and bringing the game within eight. As soon as the Broncos could get their hopes up, though, they were stampeded by a physically dominant and more skilled Wolverines team that clicked, the moment had passed.

Sophomore forward Naz Hillmon played at the U-19 World Cup in Thailand this summer.

Fifteen seconds remained in the fourth quarter of the gold-medal match in the Under-19 Women’s World Cup. The United States and Naz Hillmon were staring down the barrel of a defeat to Australia as, back to the basket, Hillmon posted up against an Australian defender on the top of the key. She watched as two of her teammates crossed in front of her, waiting for the inbound and a chance to tie the game at 66.

Six years ago, the next step was simply to get better, to go further than the third round of the WNIT. Three years ago, the Wolverines were given the cold shoulder by the NCAA selection committee – and they won the WNIT instead. The next year, they made the tournament for the first time in four years. Now, for the first time in the program’s history, Michigan is looking for its third straight NCAA Tournament bid. For the first time in the programs history, the Wolverines are shooting for the Sweet Sixteen – or higher.

It was a turbulent season for the Michigan baseball team.

The Wolverines started 8-0, but then a troublesome California trip brought them back to the ground with back-to-back losses. When they had a 13-game win streak, they were swept by Texas Tech — a series that presented perhaps their biggest test of the season. And when they recouped to gain a hand on the regular season Big Ten title, they lost their hold in the final two weeks.

OMAHA, Neb — Michigan would not win the national championship. Instead, its run will be earmarked as another remarkable underdog run ruined by a perennial power. 

In game three on Wednesday, the Wolverines (50-22 overall) lost to No. 2 Vanderbilt (59-12) 8-2. But the game seemed over by the fourth inning.

OMAHA, Neb — In February, no one thought Michigan’s season would end on June 26th. No one thought it would get its first 50-win season since 1987 and beat the No. 1 team in the country twice on the road to go to its first College World Series since 1984.

And most of all, no one thought that the feeling of losing in game three of the College World Series final against the No. 2 team in the country would be disappointing.

But it is.
