Women's Basketball

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.

Led by Naz Hillmon, Michigan has controlled the glass so far in Big Ten play.

Ranked No. 11 in the nation, the Michigan women's basketball team has dominated its opponents in part due to its prowess on the offensive glass.

Emily Kiser has been a reliable player off the bench since returning from an ankle injury.

Emily Kiser's return from injury has provided key depth and versatility for the Wolverines.

Amy Dilk has stepped up in the absence of Leigha Brown.

Given the opportunity in light of junior wing Leigha Brown's absence, junior guard Amy Dilk has shown her skills as a floor general. She has been invaluable to Michigan women's basketball maintaining its unbeaten record over the last three games.
