Minnesota women's basketball: Banham's buzzer-beater is the Call of the Week
It was the shot heard ‘round the basketball world this week.
Minnesota’s Rachel Banham, just eight days removed from a 60-point performance, provided last-second heroics once again.
Banham scored 35 points as the Golden Gophers fought back from a 13-point deficit against Iowa. None were more important than the last 3, however, and she scored as time expired to give Minnesota a 78-76 win.
Corbu Stathes had the call for the University of Minnesota:
Banham also had tallied rebounds and seven assists in the game and passed Ohio State's Jantel Lavender for second place on the Big Ten's all-time career scoring list. She now has 2,869 career points.
Carlie Wagner added 17 points for Minnesota. Chase Coley led the Hawkeyes with 21 points. Ally Disterhoft scored 20.
Averaging 26.5 points, Banham is the third-leading scorer this season in Division I women’s basketball.
Minnesota next plays at No. 25 Michigan State on Sunday, Feb. 21.
