Women's Basketball

Michigan's attendance numbers have been on a steady rise since, including two sellouts since 2017.

Barnes Arico’s teams boast the only two sold out games in Michigan women’s basketball history, both against Michigan State in 2017 and 2019. A sold-out arena in 2021 sounds like a fantasy at this point. Instead fans participated in virtual meet and greets and families watched pregame Zoom warmups.

The Michigan women's basketball team isn't the only team that's endured a long stoppage due to COVID-19.

The Wolverines can look to teams like Syracuse and Washington to see how a long pause can affect a team's season.

Akienreh Johnson serves a key role on both sides of the court.

Akienreh Johnson does it all.

Junior wing Leigha Brown is indispensable to Michigan.

Hillmon's undoubtedly their best player, but she’s not the player that moves the needle most for the Wolverines. She’s not junior wing Leigha Brown.

The 14-day shut down authorized by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is just the latest obstacle for the Wolverines.

In a normal season, the first loss would sting for a few days only to be forgotten after the next game. But this isn’t a typical season.

Against Ohio State, Michigan gave up the most points it had all season.

The women's basketball team's defensive flaws were exposed as they dropped the first game of the season to Ohio State on Thursday.

Prior to the athletic department's two-week shutdown, women's basketball coach Kim Barnes Arico's team was on the verge of a historic season.

The Michigan women's basketball team — and all other athletic programs — began a two week quarantine Jan. 24. This quarantine puts a pause on what might still end up to be the best season in program history. This new wrinkle adds a lot of uncertainty to current circumstances, but it doesn't change the impressive arc the program has been on over the last few years.


The Michigan women’s basketball has rescheduled their game against Michigan State for Tuesday, Jan. 26 in East Lansing — this is the first rescheduled game of the season. The Wolverines will also host the Spartans on Thursday, Jan. 28.

Junior forward Naz Hillmon's 50 points against Ohio State were a program record.

In the most emotional game of the season and the marquee moment of her career thus far, Naz Hillmon remained determined and expressionless. 

Amy Dilk scored 8 points in Michigan's loss to Ohio State.

Hillmon’s Michigan-record (men’s and women’s) 50-point performance wasn’t enough to overcome the team’s inconsistent offense and defensive struggles.
