Michigan Wolverines Women’s Basketball TicketsThe University of Michigan first began playing women’s basketball in 1973 with Vic Katch at the helm. Although the team originally competed in the AIAW or the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, Michigan joined the NCAA in 1982. After struggling for several seasons, Michigan made its first NCAA Tournament appearance under Head Coach Bud VanDeWege in 1990 with a 20-10 record. Michigan returned to the tournament three more times under Sue Guevara. During her tenure between 1996 and 2003, she was Michigan’s most successful coach up to that point with 123 wins and a second-place finish in the Big Ten. The arrival of Kim Barnes Arico in 2012 ushered in Michigan’s most consistent run of success. She has made a postseason tournament in every year of her tenure. In 2017, her Michigan team won the women’s NIT postseason tournament for the first time. Michigan Wolverines women’s basketball tickets are available at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
