Women's basketball: Michigan walk-on surprised with scholarship

Fifth-year senior Halle Wangler's time as a walk-on for the Michigan Wolverines is over. After practice on Feb. 2, head coach Kim Barnes Arico awarded Wangler with a scholarship mid-way through her third year on the team.

After playing at Oakland for her freshman and sophomore seasons, Wangler transfered to Michigan as a walk-on before her junior season. Besides being a Michigan-native, Wangler also has a few family connections to the university. Her father, John, played quarterback at Michigan from 1976-80 and helped lead the Wolverines to a 1981 Rose Bowl title and she also has two brothers who play for the football team.
