Junior guard Nicole Munger doesn't believe Michigan is a 'rah-rah' team

Outside of the coaching staff, it’s rare to see any Wolverine standing, clapping or doing anything else other than sitting when it comes to the bench itself.

Junior guard Nicole Munger attributed Michigan's comeback to a concentrated defensive effort.

By the end of the day, Michigan recovered from a first-quarter deficit to notch a 54-41 victory over the Golden Flashes.

Junior center Hallie Thome finished with 11 points, tying for the team high, and grabbed six rebounds as well.

Thome thrived when the Wolverines lacked steadiness, and she prevented what could have been an upset.

Freshman guard Deja Church went 5-for-8 from the floor to tie her career-high of 12 points against Marquette.

In the young season, the freshman standout has already made an impact as the first player off the bench. Her high level of play was on display in the 24th-ranked Wolverines’ 82-76 win over Marquette on Thursday night.

Junior guard Nicole Munger hit a crucial three to help Michigan stave off a Marquette upset.

The 24th-ranked Wolverines hung around in the first half, took a commanding lead in the third quarter, then nearly blew it in the fourth in a roller coaster 82-76 win over Marquette.

The 24th-ranked Wolverines will have their hands full with the potent Marquette attack, something coach Kim Barnes Arico is fully aware of.

The Michigan women's basketball team is averaging 17.3 turnovers per game — a mark that will need to improve for the Wolverines to have success.

If Michigan hopes to find success moving forward, it needs to take care of the basketball.

Senior guard Katelynn Flaherty had her way Monday, scoring 22 of her 26 points in the first half alone.

She was 11-of-14 from the field in the first half, dotting her shot chart with runners, elbow pullups, transition layups, and two 3-pointers. In the second, she barely needed to play, having done her work early.

Sophomore forward Kayla Robbins helped Michigan erase its early deficit en route to a convincing win.

Michigan found its footing quickly, though, and finished the contest in dominant fashion to come away with a 86-50 win.

Freshman guard Deja Church is among the limited options coming off Michigan's bench so far.

Among the problems exposed in the Michigan women‘s basketball team‘s loss to No. 3 Notre Dame on Wednesday: depth, or lack thereof.
