This week, the Wolverines signed two new recruits that will likely carry lofty expectations into next season.

Kim Barnes Arico and the Michigan women's basketball team have the scoring talent to make a run at the NCAA Tournament.

The Wolverines have a great opportunity to attain their first NCAA berth since 2012-13, Barnes Arico’s first season.

Katelynn Flaherty begins her junior season Thursday against Wayne State in an exhibition.

Thursday’s contest will give Michigan a chance to show off its offensive weapons, the most noteworthy being junior guard Katelynn Flaherty.

John Beilein wants Mark Donnal to be a leader in his senior season.

The stark reality is that Donnal is now the veteran piece of the puzzle that composes Michigan’s low-post presence.

Paul Schulte, who has been paralyzed since age 10, was one of the participants who played in Sunday's game.

Xavier Simpson is the Michigan men's basketball team's heir apparent at the point guard position, but that may not stop him from contributing early.

As Michigan moves on from relying on the basketball minds of Caris LeVert and Spike Albrecht, a perfectionist with great vision like Simpson will bring fresh ideas to a Wolverine backcourt looking for a change in identity.

Michigan assistant coach Billy Donlon will be tasked with revitalizing the Wolverines' defense.

Now coaching alongside the man he played against, Donlon’s respect for Beilein is evident.

The Michigan basketball teams return to the Nike uniforms with black socks and black shoes this year, the look established by the trend-setting Fab Five.

The event lasts two hours. But what comes of it could endure much longer.

Beilein acknowledged Wednesday that at least one of his assistants has received interest from other schools for their head coaching positions.

Derrick Walton Jr. will return next season as a senior starter, an essential component of most Sweet 16 teams.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget the impact that seniors and juniors have on college basketball.
