Michigan women’s basketball standout Naz Hillmon picked up a gold medal over the weekend when Team US won the FIBA Women’s AmeriCup with a 74-59 win over Puerto Rico. Hillmon averaged 11.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 21.5 minutes per game during the tournament.

“It feels amazing,” Hillmon said. “We got a great win against a great team, and being able to have gold medal with this team and this staff has been an amazing opportunity for me. I think I had a strong showing. I really tried to do anything that I could to help my team, whether that was offensively or defensively. I really felt like I put my all out there during this tournament.”

Hillmon previously earned gold with Team USA at the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship and the 2019 FIBA U19 World Cup.

Hillmon averaged 23.9 points, 11.4 rebounds last season for Michigan, was named the Big Ten Player of the Year, and was the first first-team All-American in program history.
