Women's basketball: Led by senior guard Veronica Hicks, the Wolverines have won three in a row and 6-of their last-8 games, vaulting them into a tie for 2nd in the Big Ten. Hicks has had a double-double in two of their last three games, and is helping to lead an incredibly young team as the only senior on the roster. They have a realistic shot to make the NCAA tournament, so at least one of our basketball teams will be competing in March.
Wrestling: Ranked No. 11 in the country, Michigan recently beat No. 19 Northwestern, who was previously undefeated. Michigan has the No. 1 141-pound wrestler in the country, Kellen Russell, the No. 13 197-pounder, Anthony Biondo and the No. 10 heavyweight, Ben Apland. All three won against Northwestern, helping push the Wolverines (2-0 Big Ten, 7-2 overall) over the top against one of the conferences' best teams.
Women's water polo: Even though their season is young, the Wolverines have impressed early. No. 8 Michigan had its first tournament of the season last weekend, splitting the four games. The Wolverines beat No. 15 Cal State Northridge and No. 7 San Jose State while losing by only one goal to No. 4 UCLA and then was blown out by No. 1 Stanford. The Wolverines have great depth and experience, with six seniors, and should contend not only for the Big Ten title, but also for a national championship in the spring.
Men's Gymnastics: The team that won a national championship last year will contend again this year, starting off the season ranked No. 6 in the nation. They lost by less than 4 points last weekend to No. 5 Penn State, but are still in good shape going into the season.
