Kim Barnes Arico's team lost for the fourth time in five games Wednesday.

No. 17 Michigan State dominated the in-state showdown and powered through the Wolverines in East Lansing, 85-64.

The Daily sat down with Spartan coach Suzy Merchant at Big Ten Media Day in October to talk about her ties to the in-state rivalry, new challenges in recruiting and what makes the 2015-16 season unique.

Michigan held its annual Pink Out game Sunday in honor of breast cancer awareness.

Six breast-cancer survivors were invited to dinner with the team Friday, introduced the starting lineup Sunday and received a pink basketball from the player they introduced.

Siera Thompson scored 14 points and played tight defense on Minnesota's Amanda Banham all afternoon.

The Wolverines contested nearly every shot Amanda Banham took.

Hallie Thome's career-high 31 points lifted Michigan past Minnesota.

Michigan made 25 free throws off of 26 fouls, an important factor in the 92-76 victory.

Sophomore guard Katelynn Flaherty scored 31 points in a losing cause against the Hawkeyes.

The Wolverines received a 31-point performance from sophomore guard Katelynn Flaherty — her fourth 30-point game of the season — but it wasn’t enough for Michigan to overcome its foul trouble in the post.

Katelynn Flaherty heads into Thursday's game at Iowa as Michigan's leading scorer.

Both teams left off two weeks ago in dramatic fashion, when Michigan completed a stunning 17-point comeback against the Hawkeyes in Crisler Center.

Freshman guard Boogie Brozoski first wore a protective mask in high school after breaking her nose twice.

In practice on Friday, Brozoski was hit in the face with an inadvertent elbow. She describes her current injury to her nose as a small fracture, and she chose to wear a mask for protection from further injury on the court.

Hallie Thome has emerged as one of Michigan's best offensive threats, but she's still working on her low-post defense.

The Michigan women’s basketball team’s freshman center isn’t having her way with opponents like she did throughout the non-conference schedule.

Hallie Thome couldn't match up with Nebraska's Jessica Shepard down low Sunday.

Shepard outrebounded Thome, 20-6, outscored her, 35-24, and also managed to stay out of foul trouble.
