Congratulations to Rachel Banham who caps off her fantastic Gopher career with a 1st Team All-American to add to her list of awards and accomplishments.
Banham's senior season included an NCAA record 60-point game, breaking the Big Ten scoring record, getting Tweets from Kobe Bryant, buzzer-beater three to beat Iowa and finally accomplishing one of her goals set before the season by earning All-American honors.
"It means a lot," Banham said. "It's something that I always wanted and had been working towards," the guard said. "I told my coach at the beginning of year I want to be an All-America, and coming off an injury, it means a lot more to me."
She is expected to be drafted in next month's WNBA draft and this mock draft has her going 5th overall.
A fantastic career for this young woman and this Gopher great will have more great basketball ahead of her.
