Women's Basketball

.

After three weeks of postponed games and limited practices due to COVID-19, the No. 16 Michigan women’s basketball team (6-0 overall, 1-0 Big Ten) didn’t miss a beat during a dominating win over Wisconsin (3-3, 0-3), 92-49.

Michigan women's basketball has postponed its second game of the season..

For the second time in three days, the Michigan women’s basketball team has postponed its game. The Wolverines were supposed to play Penn State on Dec. 23, but just like their game on Dec. 21, it has been postponed.

Michigan's game against Illinois Saturday has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the program.

The Michigan women’s basketball team has postponed its game against Illinois scheduled for Saturday. The matchup would have been the Wolverines’ first conference game this season. Michigan has already played five non-conference games without any concerns.

Akienreh Johnson sparked Michigan's offense with 5 assists.

With ten players notching double-digit minutes on the court, the Michigan women’s basketball team proved that the starting five don’t need to play every minute in order to win.

Sophomore guard Michelle Sidor went 4-for-8 from outside on Wednesday, her best performance beyond the arc this season.

In its final non-conference game of the season, 3-point shooting was the difference for the No. 19 Michigan women’s basketball team. 

Hailey Brown's fourth year of starting set her up to perfectly explode.

Senior forward Hailey Brown has been a mainstay for the Wolverines ever since she arrived in Ann Arbor three years ago. With classmates Deja Church and Priscilla Smeenge having transferred to DePaul and Liberty, respectively, Brown is the only one left.

Once again, despite its efficient offensive performance, turnovers plagued Michigan. The Wolverines committed 18 turnovers against Wright State, adding to their average of 16.75 turnovers per game.

Wright State’s inability to make shots and Michigan’s own efficient shooting saved the Wolverines from sloppy play — turnovers, questionable passing and allowing second-chance shots on defense.

After a rocky start to the game, Michigan was able to find its way to a win by focusing on ball movement.

Move the ball, find the open player. 

That’s the strategy that the Michigan women’s basketball team used in its 76-66 victory over Notre Dame on Thursday night. 

For the first time in 12 years, Michigan bested Notre Dame, beating the Fighting Irish by 10 points on their own court.

That all changed as the Wolverines beat Notre Dame, 76-66, in a back-and-forth, intense battle not characteristic of early season games. Come March, this could prove to be a statement win that does wonders for Michigan’s tournament seeding and overall confidence.
