On Thursday, Barnes Arico won her 124th game, making her the program’s all-time winningest coach.
The Michigan women’s basketball team has won nine of its last ten games, including two of its first three Big Ten contests. On Sunday, the Wolverines’ veracity will be put to the test in the regular season’s most important opponent: Ohio State.
The Wolverines rebounded from its loss against Iowa with an 80-57 victory over Wisconsin.
No. 22 Michigan should feel confident that they can put coach Kim Barnes Arico atop the all-time Wolverine wins list against a meager Wisconsin squad.
Michigan defeated Penn State, 89-69 in its first conference matchup of the season, and the outcome was never really in doubt.
Since allowing a season-high 76 points to Marquette about two weeks ago, the Wolverines’ defense has been overpowering.
After a huge first quarter for the Wolverines, the score continued to climb, and they never let up.
Outside of the coaching staff, it’s rare to see any Wolverine standing, clapping or doing anything else other than sitting when it comes to the bench itself.
By the end of the day, Michigan recovered from a first-quarter deficit to notch a 54-41 victory over the Golden Flashes.
Thome thrived when the Wolverines lacked steadiness, and she prevented what could have been an upset.
