Women's College Basketball

          === Michigan hires Barnes Arico to lead women's program ===
 Ann  Arbor, MI  (Sports Network)  - St.  John's women's  basketball coach  Kim
 Barnes  Arico  has  been  hired  as Kevin  Borseth's  successor  at  Michigan,
 announced director of athletics Dave Brandon on Friday.
 Barnes  Arico,  who spent  the last 10  years with the  Red Storm, guided them
 to the regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school
 history this past season.
 "I  am excited and  honored to represent the University of Michigan as its new
 head women's basketball coach," said Barnes Arico. "The University of Michigan
 is  world  renowned for its  academic and  athletic excellence and our program
 will  continue to  stress the Universities foundational values of being a true
 student-athlete  -  excellence in  the classroom, excellence  on the court and
 involvement in the community," Barnes Arico said.
 Barnes  Arico takes  over for Borseth, who  left the institution to go back to
 Wisconsin-Green  Bay  this past month.  The Wolverines went 20-12 this season,
 which  ended in  an NCAA tournament loss  -- Michigan's first trip to the NCAA
 Tournament since 2001 -- to Oklahoma.
