The senior forward is averaging 21.2 points and 9.1 rebounds per game this season, just below her averages of 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds during the 2020-21 season. Thanks to her play this season, Michigan reached its highest-ever ranking in the AP poll (No. 6) and recorded its first two wins over top-five ranked teams (Baylor on Dec. 19 and Indiana on Jan. 31).
Hillmon will look to lead the Wolverines (22-4) to their first Ben Ten tournament title and on a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. Th 21-year-old is then expected to enter the WNBA Draft, where she is a top prospect.
