Watch Rachel Banham set Big Ten all-time scoring record

Rachel Banham needed 50 points to become the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer Sunday afternoon. The Minnesota star would have to wait until next week, right? Nope.

She set the record (2,921 points), appropriately, on a contested, deep 3-pointer in the closing seconds. Watch the record-setting triple in the video above. Banham wasn’t the only star in the Minnesota-Michigan State game, though. Michigan State’s Aerial Powers poured in a career-high 40 points

Rachel Banham hits game-winner; Kobe Bryant tweets about it

The way Rachel Banham is torching the nets, we should just expect Kobe Bryant to tweet after every Minnesota game. Eight days removed from scoring a Big Ten women’s single-game record and an NCAA-tying 60 points, a performance the future NBA Hall of Famer tweeted about twice (here & here), Banham drained a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to send Minnesota past Iowa on Monday night.
