Junior guard Nicole Munger continues to thrive in her role, sharing a backcourt with Katelynn Flaherty.

Nicole Munger plays a crucial role for the team and is an important piece to the Wolverines’ puzzle. Yet Munger is seldom in the spotlight.

Junior shooting guard Nicole Munger credited Michigan's offseason work for its success at the free throw line.

In the No. 24 Michigan women’s basketball team’s 74-50 blowout against Liberty, the Wolverines relied on a strong performance from the free throw line – a major differentiator in the game.

By halftime, the Wolverines were up by 20. When the third quarter ended, the margin was 27. When the final horn sounded, the score was 74-50 and the game not as close as that.

Junior center Hallie Thome notched a game-high 12 rebounds out of Michigan’s 54 total boards.

The Wolverines accumulated a whopping 54 offensive and defensive rebounds, compared to the 26 total for the Patriots.

Junior center Hallie Thome turned in a 15-point performance after the Wolverines raised their first banner Friday night.

For the first time ever, a banner hangs in Crisler Center for the Michigan women’s basketball team.

“It was a really emotional night,” said coach Kim Barnes Arico. “It’s a really special thing. It was a great night to celebrate Michigan women’s basketball.”

Junior center Hallie Thome will be one of Michigan’s key returning players this season.

The Wolverines will raise their WNIT championship banner before tipoff when they host George Mason to kick off the 2017-18 season.

Junior center Hallie Thome was a preseason All-Big Ten selection after averaging just over 16 points last season.

Though the Wolverines lost Siera Thompson and Danielle Williams, they will rely on the production of its remaining upperclassmen during the 2017 season.

Jillian Dunston has become the player Michigan looks to do the little things. More importantly, though, she serves as the Wolverines' emotional leader as they look to secure a NCAA Tournament bid.

Michigan guard Katelyn Flaherty will play a larger role than ever in ensuring the Wolverines achieve their postseason aspirations.

The Michigan women's basketball team will be tasked with competing against two top-25 opponents in conference play.

While the Wolverines have talent and depth on the roster, there are plenty of teams standing in their way. The Daily breaks down this year’s Big Ten conference:
