NOVEMBER 2018 THE WOLVERINE 57 "I think we have a great team and have a lot of scoring threats," Thome said. Since the end of last season, Thome said she's improved on her physical- ity and added muscle to work in the post. Out of the post, she'll look to fel- low senior Munger on the perimeter. Munger averaged 9.1 points and 4.4 rebounds per game last season while starting all 33 contests. Her shooting — she made 42.1 percent of her shots overall and 40.4 percent of her 146 three-point attempts — could help open up things down low for Thome. "She can shoot the basketball bet- ter than, I believe, anyone in the country," Barnes Arico said. "I have to continually remind her of that because she doesn't shoot the ball enough for my liking." Munger and Thome were key parts of last season's run to the second round of the NCAA Tour- nament, but the biggest thing that will be different about this year 's team is its depth.
